Wetmore Cardinals Girl's Head to State Semi's with Win

The success continues for the Wetmore Cardinals as they moved on to the Class 1A-Division II state tourney semifinals with a 40-29 win over the Logan Trojans in their first round matchup. It wasn't a pretty game to get the first round of action in the girl's tournament underway for the day, but it was affective enough for the Cardinals to advance with a win. After a low scoring first half it was only a two-point lead for the Wetmore going into the half, 19-17. Second half was to much different as the shooting woes continued for both squads.

Logan actually took the lead for the first time in the game and had a one-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, but it would be the free throw shooting of Wetmore that would help them pull away in the fourth to notch the win. The Cardinals shot 17-27 from the free throw line in the game with their leading scorer junior, Dana Kramer getting all her 12 points for the free throw line in the second half of action, earning herself the United Bank and Trust "Player to Bank On" award for the third time this season.

The Logan Trojans shot 22 percent from the floor as a team and finished the night with one in double figures. Senior, Caley Greving lead the way with nine points and 13 rebounds in the loss, as she fouled out midway through the fourth quarter. Logan keep themselves in the game earlier with an 11-14 performance from the free throw line in the first half, but didn't make a trip to the line in the entire second half.

For Wetmore is was Kramer to lead the way with her 12 points, all from the free throw line. While the Cardinals struggled from the floor, as well, shooting 26 percent. Where the Cardinals came up big was the free throw line though, as previously stated going 17-27 from the line. The rebounding margin was heavily in favor of Logan, 40-25 but for Wetmore they didn't let it allow many second chance points for the Trojans.

Wetmore has found different ways to win there last few games, but have been able to do it despite not shooting that well from the floor in the last two contests. Logan ends their season with a 15-9 record. While the Wetmore Cardinals advance on to the semifinals of the state tourney, tomorrow where they will play the sixth seed Wallace County Wildcats who upset the three seed Norwich Eagles, 53-45.

Wetmore improves to 22-2 on the season with the win and continue their successful season, now knowing they have assured themselves no less than a fourth place finish in state, with hopes of a state championship still alive.
