LE MARS — The Le Mars Lady Bulldogs avenged a 19-point loss last month with a 52-49, overtime victory over 14th-rated (5A) Sioux City East Monday night at the Bulldogs Competition gym.  The Lady Dogs broke away to an 11-point lead in the first half before the Black Raiders eventually caught up.  Shaniah Temple had 23 points to pace the Le Mars upset.    The loss was the first M-R-A-C loss in 13 games for East High, who wrapped up the conference championship last Thursday with a win over Council Bluffs A-L.  Le Mars improves to 11-8 for the season and they finish at 9-5 in league play.  The Lady Bulldogs travel to Storm Lake Tuesday before returning home Friday to host Vermillion in their regular season finale.  Le Mars begins 4A Regional play a week from Wednesday.

LE MARS — In one of the wildest finishes in Bulldog basketball history, Le Mars outlasted Sioux City East 101-96 Tuesday night in four overtimes in a Missouri River Conference boys match-up at the Bulldogs Competition gym.  Spencer Mackey scored in the final seconds of regulation to force overtime and Caleb Dreckman hit a three at the end of the third overtime to extend the contest to a fourth overtime period.  Spencer Mackey led a balanced Le Mars scoring attack with 23 points, Alec Dreckman had 22, Caleb Dreckman 18, Brady Williams 17 and Jaxon Baumgartner 13. DaVares Whitaker led all scorers with 34 for East with Dom Drent adding 24 for the Black Raiders.  Le Mars improves to 15-4 for the season and closes out M-R-A-C play at 12-2.  The Le Mars guys and gals host Vermillion Friday and the boys close out the regular season Monday at home against South Sioux City.

HINTON — The fifth-rated (1A) Gehlen Catholic boys closed out an unbeaten War Eagle Conference season with a 69-65 victory at Hinton Tuesday night to improve to 19-1 for the season and the Jays completed a 10-0 conference season.  The Jays nearly squandered a 15-point lead in the final three minutes of the game as the Blackhawks closed to within 68-65 with eleven seconds to play before Dylan Lehmann scored his only point of the game, hitting one of two foul shots with five seconds to play to ice the victory.  Gehlen hit only 3-of-10 foul shots in the fourth quarter to allow Hinton to close in.  Carter DeRocher led the Jays with 26 points and Keaton Bonderson added 25.  Zach Kraft had a season-best 13 for the Jays.  Caleb Holmes led all scorers with 32 for Hinton and Landon Lovrien added 16.  The Blackhawks fall to 8-12 for the season and 3-7 in the W-E-C.  Gehlen closes out the regular season Friday at South O’Brien.  The game will be carried on KLEM.  The Jays open 1A District play at home Monday.  Hinton hosts Sioux Central Thursday.

The Hinton girls ran off 16 unanswered points in the first half to break away from a 9-all tie and Gehlen Catholic never recovered, falling 63-46 as the Blackhawks completed a season sweep of the Lady Jays.  Gehlen trimmed a 14-point halftime deficit to six in the third quarter but Hinton went up by 19 in the final 30 seconds of the fourth quarter before settling on a 17-point victory.  Anna Coffee led the Blackhawks with 19 points, Bella Bader had 18 and Ashlyn Kovarna 13.  Rachel Langel led Gehlen Catholic with 11 while Lauren Heying and Miyah Whitehead had ten each.  Hinton finishes the regular season at 10-10 and 5-5 in the War Eagle Conference and Gehlen drops to 10-11 with a 5-5 W-E-C mark.  Gehlen opens 1A Regional play at Remsen St. Mary’s Thursday night at 7 pm on KLEM.  Hinton plays a 2A Regional game at West Monona next Tuesday.

STORM LAKE — The Le Mars Lady Bulldogs picked up their fourth win in a row Tuesday night with a 58-33 victory at Storm Lake in the renewal of a one-time Lakes Conference rivalry.  Freshman Sarah Brown hit five three-pointers for Le Mars and finished with a team-high 15 points.  Senior Kylie Dreckman added 14.  The Lady Bulldogs improve to 12-8 for the season and will wrap up the regular season Friday night at home against Vermillion before embarking on the 4A Regional tournament trail next Wednesday.

REMSEN — Claire Schroeder led a balanced scoring attack for Remsen St. Mary’s Thursday night, coming off the bench to score 15 points, as the Hawks advanced to the 1A Regional tournament quarterfinals with a 47-39 victory over Gehlen Catbolic.  Carmindee Ricke added eight points and Whitney Jenson and Brittany Johnson scored six each.  It was the Hawks pressure defense that made the difference Thursday night.  Turnovers often led to fast-break buckets for R-S-M.  Gehlen opened the second half with a 7-0 run to close an eight-point St. Mary’s halftime lead to 23-22.  Schroeder then hit her first three-pointer of the season with 5:28 to play in the third quarter to extend the lead to four and the Hawks refused to relinquish the lead, building their advantage to 13 by the quarter’s end.  Rachel Langel led Gehlen’s scoring with 11, nine coming in the fourth quarter as the Lady Jays tried to forge a rally.  Lauren Heying added nine and Miyah Whitehead 8.  Gehlen Catholic closes out the season at 10-12 while Remsen St. Mary’s improves to 13-9.
