“The team is pretty balanced, and the new girls are catching on to how to work together as a team,” Coach Ray Augare said of the Lady Indians having easily beaten Whitefish and Shelby in last week’s action.
Beginning on Friday, Jan. 3, Browning jumped out to a 20-6 lead over Whitefish in the first quarter and kept their opponents in single digits apart from the second period on. Dulci Skunkcap led with 14 points, followed by Chalissa Kipp with 10, Tamika Guardipee nine, Kelsey Mad Plume and Hailey Racine eight, Mecca Bullchild seven, Tatum Running Crane four, Alena Burdeau three, and Walker Running Crane and Payton Crossguns with two points.
“Shelby was a little tougher team,” Coach Augare said of the Jan. 4 contest. “We played really well in the first half on a man-to-man defense; then we switched to the zone in the second half.”
Browning jumped out to a 41-22 score at halftime and lengthened the lead by four points by game’s end. Dulci Skunkcap led again with 16 points, followed by Walker Running Crane with 15, Chalissa Kipp nine, Tatum Running Crane seven, Alena Burdeau six, Tamika Guardipee four, Kelsey Mad Plume three and Mecca Bullchild with two points.
