Broughton had a baby this week in addition to the win. The girls move to 15-5 and 7-0 in conference play. Junior Morgan Pietig said, “I’m really proud of the way our team is playing right now. If we are playing this good, it will be really hard to beat us in districts. I also just want a student section at our Courtwarming game.”
On Friday there was a girl/boy doubleheader for the Courtwarming game. Both teams played Ray-Pec. Girls Varsity won 51-39 over a tough Ray-Pec squad. Their win Friday officially clinched the conference championship for a third straight year.
