by Wyandotte Daily Sports
The Schlagle High School girls basketball team lost to Blue Valley Southwest on Friday evening, 43-41, narrowly missing the opportunity to play in the 5A KSHSAA state title game on Saturday.
Schlagle held a 25-20 halftime lead, but Southwest clawed its way back in the third quarter, outscoring the Lady Stallions by nine to pull ahead.
Schlagle stayed close through the closing quarter, but wasn’t able to close the gap. A final, potentially game-winning 3-point shot from Armanaie Blacksure fell short.
Blacksure led the Lady Stallions in scoring, picking up 18 points, including 5-for-11 on 3-point shots. Camille Evans scored 12 and pulled down 10 rebounds. Ishante Suttington, the Lady Stallions’ leading scorer for the season, was not able to play because of a knee injury.
Schlagle will play for third place on Saturday against the McPherson Lady Bullpups. The game will take place at noon at the Emporia-White Auditorium.
