Lady Bears take second in Shootout

WAYNE — It had been a while since the Laurel-Concord-Coleridge Lady Bears started the Great Northeast Neb. Shootout on the right foot.

After the Holiday break was extended by two days due to a winter storm, the Lady Bears came out of a week-long break to get the tournament started with a 55-52 win over Wayne Dec. 29.

Unfortunately, the Lady Bears weren’t able to keep that momentum into the Dec. 31 finals, as Norfolk Catholic was able to build a 20-point advantage and hold off a comeback for the 51-40 win in the White Bracket title game.

Coach Nate Sims said he was happy to see his team play well enough to win after the long layoff, something they haven’t been able to do in recent years.
