Lady Wolves shoot hoops, hoops for the holidays


Wrangell High School’s girls basketballers headed to Juneau Dec. 19 and 20 for some pre-seasonal play at the annual Holiday Hoop.

“It went really well,” said the team’s coach, Edna Abella-Nore.

“We won our last game,” she said, Saturday’s match against Thunder Mountain High. The Wolves won with a good lead, 28 to 18. To finish things, Darrien Meissner succeeded in throwing a three-point

buzzer-beater as the clock ran out.

“It’s a neat thing to witness,” said Abella-Nore. “It usually doesn’t happen too often.”

The girls lost by only three points Friday during their game against Juneau-Douglas, 32-29.

“If we made our free-throws, we would have won,” Abella-Nore pointed out.

During the game, Teresa Flores scored 14 points; Meissner, 12; and Marsha McKay, 3.

Due to the game’s close proximity to the Christmas

holiday, the entire team

wasn’t able to make the tournament.

“This trip I was only able to take six girls,” said the coach.

The team should be in full form when it begins regular play this weekend, however.

The Lady Wolves’ first

official game of the season begins in Haines Friday and Saturday, while the boys team will be hosting the Glacier Bears here in Wrangell.
