Lady Devils are one win from State

HARTINGTON —  The Wynot Lady Blue Devils advanced one more step Thursday on their crusade to get back to the state tournament.

The Lady Devils rolled over the Newcastle Raiders to win their SubDistrict and now will play Mullen at Bassett next Friday with a trip to the big dance on the line.

Wynot ran up big numbers in the first two quarters Thursday as they cruised to a 36-10 haftime lead and never looked back as they went on to crush the Raiders 65-29.

Wynot’s record improved to 22-3 with the win, while Newcastle’s season came to an end at 8-14.

The Blue Devil offense was clicking on all cyclinders as 11 players scored in this one, led by Maggie Schulte with 17 points and Shelby Wieseler’s 11 point effort.

Newcastle got solid play on the inside from Devin Jacobs with nine points and Shelby

Olson contributed eight points to the Raiders’ cause.

Ten points by Maggie Schulte and four points from Haley Gowery got Wynot off to a fast 17-7 lead. Devin Jacobs had five points for the Raiders.

A pair of three pointers by Shelby Wieseler and five points from Samantha Wieseler kept Wynot rolling in the second as a 19-3 run put the Raiders in a big hole 36-10 at the half.

Shelby Olsen hit a trey and scored six third- quarter points for Newcastle and Kate Kniefl also drained a pair of fieldgoals for the Lady Raiders. Wynot, however, was rolling as they got five points by Schulte and treys from both Kattie Savoy and Shelby Hochstein that dug the hole deeper as the Raiders trailed 59-22 after three periods.

Newcastle got four points from Brooke McCluskey in the fourth and a fieldgoal by Brittany Bruening but Wynot was relentless and fieldgoals by Zoey Heimes, Bailey Kuchta and Shelby Wieseler finished off the Lady Raiders, 65-29.
