Rose Nkumu '20 prepares to shoot a free throw during the Little Hawks' quarter-final game against West Des Moines Valley on February 26th, 2018.

All season long, nobody has been a match for the girls’ basketball team. That didn’t change in the first-round of the State tournament. After losing to Cedar Falls last year in the quarter-finals, this year’s squad has been on a mission to avenge themselves, and every player chipped in. The experienced squad didn’t let their strong desire to win get the best of them, however, only allowing Valley to lead for 34 seconds of the game.

Iowa State commit Ashley Joens was the leading scorer on the court, scoring 36 points and tying the 5A tournament record. Aubrey Joens followed with 20, Paige Rocca and Rose Nkumu had nine apiece, and Freshman Ella Cook scored four.

Rose Nkumu ’20 had the most steals of the day with five.

At halftime the Little Hawks had forced 11 turnovers, and the Joens girls had a combined 33 points—one point less than Valley’s 34.

The Little Hawks will continue their journey to the championship this Thursday, March 1st, at 10:00 a.m. against the #4 seed Johnston.
