The Magazine Sr Lady Rattlers 2019-2020 basketball season has come to an end. The Lady Rattlers earned the #4 seed in the Sr High District Tournament which started gameplay on Monday, February 17 in Hector. The girls jumped into action in round two on Tuesday night against the #5 seeded Hector Lady Wildcats. After going 100 miles an hour for four full quarters, the Lady Rattlers took a heartbreaking 55-54 loss putting an end to District play. Magazine ends with a 14-10 total season record, 7-5 in conference play, and earned a grand total of 1114 points.
The Lady Rattlers finished their year with some pretty impressive stats. Kiara Vasquez averaged 16.1 points per game, 63% of free throws, and seven rebounds per game. Kylie Robinson acquired 15.5 points per game, 70% free-throws, 5.5 rebounds per game, and 2.5 steals per game. Hannah Green earned 6.1 rebounds per game. And Jordyn Krigbaum achieved 69% free throws. On January 21, Kylie Robinson set a new school scoring record by scoring 43 points surpassing Hope Raggio’s 37 points scored in a 2004 regional finals win over Charleston.
“We showed gradual improvement as the season progressed,” explained coach, Randy Loyd. “I never place blame on officials but I felt the season ended prematurely with a terribly officiated game in the District Tournament at Hector Tuesday night against Hector. I thought the girls played really hard and unselfishly all season long and that’s all I could ask for!”
