Game Date
Mar 8, 2024
Score
: 49.00
OPEN: 40.00

Fremont 49  Grant 40

This was our first district championship in the girls program since 2009 and the first time we have won a conference championship and district championship in the same year since 1978.....46 year.  It is also the most wins in school history since that 1978 team won 23.

We are notorious for getting off to slow starts....all season long, but we took it to a new level tonight.  We didn't score until 1:30 or so to go in the first quarter and trailed 11-1.  In the second quarter we made some shots and trailed 20-11 at half.  We talked at halftime, if any team can come back after a bad start....its us.  As we started to score, our full court pressure picked up, the huge crowd of Fremont Faithful got loud and momentum went our way.  We took a breif lead in the 3rd, but grant scored to end the quarter and we were tied going into the 4th.  Grant got a couple buckets early 4th, but momentum was ours and we outscored them 20-11 in the 4th.  Riley Again game up big with 12 points and 8 steals.  Jessica Bennett had a monster game with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 10 blocked shots.  Freshmen Taylor DeKuiper, who did not come out of the game, had 9 points, 12 rebounds and 7 steals.  Khaila Noordyk had 6 points and 6 rebounds before hurting her knee in the third quarter and not being able to return.  

Our girls are just resilient and have no quit.  I am so proud of them for not giving up or hanging their heads when we were down at least 14 points early.  We have so many that contributed throughout the game.  Riley Chase was again Huge just like Wednesday.  Taylor DeKuiper scored 7 of her 9 in the 4th quarter and Jessica Bennett is just Clutch.  She had 8 of her 16 in the 4th including a 27 foot 3pt shot after grant scored mid 4th.  She is fearless.  

We play Spring Lake Monday at Sparta.  We lost to Spring Lake in the first game of the season.  In the locker room after the game I told the girls if they worked hard, worked together and if they trusted what I was going to teach and coach them, we would see Spring Lake again in Regionals.  Not sure they believed me then, but Here We Come.  We are 20-4, 12-0
