Girls’ Basketball Wins Section 5AA Championship. Advances to State.

Girls’ Basketball Wins Section 5AA Championship. Advances to State.

For the ninth consecutive year, the Maranatha Christian Academy girls’ basketball team has advanced to the State Tournament. This year they won a hard-fought, physical game against Holy Family Catholic School in the Section Final in order to clinch their first appearance in Class AA.

The team, led by seniors Kylie Post (playing at U of MN-Crookston next year) and Jaclyn Jarnot (playing at Monmouth University next year), is deep and fast, yet in their Section Championship Game, they needed to adjust and play a slower methodical game and solid defense. With their hard work, tough schedule that prepared them for high-pressure games, and unwavering belief, they are looking to make a deep run in the tournament.

Good luck ladies. We’ll be cheering you on!

Go Mustangs.
