Wheatland Girls Basketball Team Starts Out 4-0
The Wheatland girls' basketball team won just 6 games a year ago and already this season, they have 4 victories without a loss. The Bulldogs played in the Burns Tournament over the weekend and started out with a 60-30 win over Pine Bluffs. They followed that up with a hard-earned 48-38 victory over Burns and then beat Big Horn 58-18 and Thermopolis 61-23.
Wheatland has a returning all-conference player in Lily Nichols who is a superb all-around athlete. They also have a veteran guard in Grace Battershell who was an all-state volleyball player. This could be one of the most improved teams in 3A if they play to their potential.
We talked with Lily Nichols and Kacey Otero after their win over Burns which turned out to be a very competitive game. We also have a few photos to share in our gallery below.
