The Lady Titans hosted their first playoff game on Feb. 25, defeating Standley Lake 45-33.  The Lady Titans will play the Poudre Impalas at 6:30 p.m. today, Feb. 28.

In their last regular season game, the Lady Titans defeated the Chaparral Wolverines 40-36 on Feb. 21. It was a tight battle with the game heating up after the second quarter when the teams were tied. By the end of the third quarter, Legend was headed to the win.

In the game against Chaparral, point guard Kristen Gallagher, junior, was named player of the game with 8 points, 3 assists, 2 rebounds and 2 steals. Captain Joey Sale, a junior, also played well with nine points and seven rebounds.  Other standout players include Amanda Benglen and Whitney Jacob for their defensive efforts against the Wolverines.

One of the Lady Titans’ goals at the beginning of the season was to have a winning record and a minimum of 12 wins. With this win, the team ended the regular season with a 12-11 record, eclipsing their record of 9-15 that they held for the previous two seasons.

 “I feel great about how it went. And how we overcame the adversity in the game to finally beat Chaparral. We finally got over the ‘hump,’” Sale said.
