Centralia Ends Salem's Season

The Salem Lady Wildcats saw their season come to an end in

the play-in game of the Class 3A regional at the Arena in Centralia, falling to

the Annies 51-47 in the first game of the tournament. For Salem, it’s their

third loss in four games this year to Centralia.

Abbey Holtkamp had twelve points and Danielle Meadows

finished with eleven to lead the way for the Annies. Centralia went 17-of-33

from the foul line, a majority of those coming in the fourth quarter to seal

the deal.

Salem was 11-of-19 from the stripe. The Lady Cats were led

by their lone senior, Morgan Hawkins, with fifteen points. The Lady Cats

received twelve points from sophomore Shelby Holst, ten of those coming in the

fourth quarter, as Salem had a ferocious comeback cut just short.

For Salem, it was their earliest exit from the regional

tournament in some time, as they end the season 14-16.

Salem’s pressure was

never truly able to get going, according to Head Coach Janet Holst.

“We weren’t able to get into it the way we needed to and

that hurt us a little bit. But we got enough out of it that I think it wore

[Centralia] out a little bit going down the stretch. We had some kids that came

to play tonight and we had some that I expected and really didn’t.”

The Annies advance to tonight’s match-up with the top-seeded

Mater Dei Lady Knights. The second game of the night will feature the 2-3

match-up between the Effingham Lady Hearts and the Olney Lady Tigers.
