PEEBLES 61, GREEN 27

In a Division IV sectional final contest held at Northwest High School, the Peebles Indians outlasted the Bobcats, 61-27.

Indians’ sophomore guard Jacey Justice led all scorers with a game high 25 points. In the second quarter of Saturday’s sectional final, Justice scored her 1,000th career point in less than two full seasons as a varsity player for the Indians.

Green was led in scoring by freshman Kasey Kimbler who finished with 13.

Even though they lose seniors Megan Johnson and Logan Jones to graduation, the Bobcats return the rest of their roster from a team that earned their first postseason win since 2009.

“They always set a good example, they always came in and worked hard,” said Green head coach Melissa Knapp when speaking on her two seniors she’ll lose to graduation this May. “They’re the two that ended up staying till the end, they stuck it out through the good times and the bad times. They’ve been great examples, they’re buddies with the freshman and sophomores, kind of showed them the ropes and given them something to build a foundation on.”

With the return of players like Kimbler and sophomore Kame Sweeny next season, look out for the Bobcats to be a contender in the SOC I next season.
