Clester’s big night leads fifth & sixth grade girls to victory

Okeene’s fifth/sixth grade basketball teams got back on the court last week with a couple of games in Thomas on Monday night. While the girls won a close one 13-12, the boys dropped their game with the Terriers 26-21.

The Lady Whippets got out to an early lead over Thomas, taking a five-point lead at halftime, but the final two quarters almost doomed Okeene. The Lady Terriers outscored Okeene 13-4 in the second half, including holding the Lady Whippets scoreless in the final frame.

Still, Okeene escaped with the one-point victory, thanks to a big night from Zoe Clester. Clester scored 11 of Okeene’s 13 points, with only Hannah Swart’s first-quarter basket accounting for the rest of the Lady Whippets’ scoring output.
