The Kayhi Lady Kings will play the Thunder Mountain Falcons at home today and Saturday. Kayhi has beat the Falcons 14 times in a row with a win average of 23.5 points, but the steadily improving Falcons will pose a threat to Kayhi.
Earlier this month in the second meeting between the two teams, Thunder Mountain held Kayhi to 5 first quarter points and lead 12-5 before Kayhi opened up a lead with a 17-2 run. Still, the Falcons would not go away and Kayhi needed a 17-3 run in the second half to secure the win after TM pulled to within 2.
Friday’s game will be the annual Pink Night, to support breast cancer awareness. Saturday night is Senior Night and the last regular-season games for Brittany Slick and Hannah Maxwell.
Two wins will give the Lady Kings the No. 1 seed at the Region V tournament next month. Senior Brittany Slick has many emotions knowing that it will be her last regular season game for Kayhi ever.
“It’s exciting but also sad,” said Slick. “ It will be the end to a sport that’s been a huge part of my life, but ending it on my home floor with my team is really exciting. It is also a huge moment of gratitude realizing how many people helped me to get to where I am today. I couldn’t have done it without my team, family, and coaches.
Senior Captain Hannah Maxwell is very sad knowing that her high school career is coming to an end.
“I’m definitely going to cry,” said Maxwell. “Basketball has been a part of my life since I could walk, and now it almost over. This weekend will be one to remember.”
