Girls come up short against two good teams

Subdistricts start next week; Chase County likely to face Hershey

    Just like the start of the season, the Lady Longhorns face a lot of tough teams at the end.
    That proved true last week as Chase County came up on the short end against Yuma, Colorado and North Platte St. Pat’s.    
    “We expected a tough week,” said Coach Mark Bottom.
    Against St. Pat’s at home Friday, Bottom said he didn’t feel that bad after their 39-61 loss because his team did everything they asked of them.
    At Yuma Jan. 29, he said his team had a stagnant first half and were outrebounded, but picked up the pace second half.
    Chase County plays its final regular season game Saturday at Cambridge and will start post-season play next week.
