Junior High Whippets close out November with a pair of victories over Burlington
Prior to Thanksgiving Break, the Okeene junior high basketball teams squeezed in a pair of games on Monday night when Burlington came to town. It was a strong way for the Whippets to wrap up the first month of the season as the girls cruised by a score of 29-6, and the boys won 39-29.
For the girls, Okeene did a great job of making up for a clear size disadvantage with their ability to move the ball and rebound as a team. The Lady Elks had to girls that were taller than anyone on Coach Patrick Penner’s roster, so the Lady Whippets followed every rebound with a quick outlet pass to beat Burlington down the floor in transition.
