It was a busy week for the girls basketball teams around the county.

Though there were some great match ups, not all the teams were able to get away with a win.

Noxon Lady Devils went down to Troy and the Hot Springs Lady Savage Heat fell to St. Regis for Class C matches.

It was the same for Sanders County Class B team Thompson Falls as the Lady Hawks went down to Bigfork.

However the Plains Trotters easily topped the Two-Eagle River’s Lady Eagles, 67-15.

The Trotters are becoming more consistent on the court, especially in front of a home crowd. Head coach Jessica Nagy is producing good combinations on the court, even bringing up JV players when needed.

The standout players for last Friday’s contest was Hayley Josephson, Lindsay Laws, Kara Altmiller and Jessica Thompson.

There were plenty of baskets made, but it was the ball handling and defense that really had the Trotters utilizing their advantages.

Watching from the sidelines, the girls are certainly getting stronger each time they play. Hayley Josephson seems to be gaining more momentum each time she plays.

Quick on her feet and strong ball-handling skills, she takes the full length of the court full speed for more successful lay-ups then what you would expect.

Most certainly a secret weapon, one that coach Nagy gets good use out of from start to finish ensuring the Trotters are one team all Class C teams want to keep a watch on.
