Three Forks preps for busy week of conference action

It will be a busy week of conference action for the Three Forks High School Girls' Basketball team, with a Thursday home game against Whitehall and a Friday contest at Boulder.

In action last week, the Wolves dropped two games to ranked teams, 48-27 Friday against visiting Columbus, and 67-44 Saturday at Big Timber.

"Playing two state-ranked teams back-to-back was really mentally daunting for us. But I think our weaknesses are easier to pick out because Columbus and Big Timber capitalize on them more.," said Head Coach Lacy Noble. "So, from a learning perspective, we know what to work on this week. We've improved in some areas and still working on others. I was really happy with our first-half effort against Big Timber, our defense played as a unit, and we were able to limit their points, especially by their main shooters."

Maddie Tesoro led the team in scoring against Big Timber with 14, and Tanaya Hauser also scored double figures with 11. Fallon Page finished with six, Eva Parker had four, and Bella Jones added three. Kylee Reichman, Devynn Judd, and Brielle Davis all had two points.

Hauser led the team in scoring against Columbus with 11. Judd finished with 10, Parker had four, Reichman added two, and Davis had one point.

Looking towards Thursday against Whitehall, Noble said the Trojans are scrappy, and her squad will have to play through mistakes. Three Forks took home a 46-45 win at Whitehall in the first matchup of the year before Christmas Break.

"I hope the girls have a positive mindset all through the game and lift each other up when we have a little stumble. But Thursday's game against Whitehall is a big one. We need it," she said.
