PHOTO OF THE DAY: ON THE DEFENSIVE
Freeman senior Erin Uecker defends Centerville’s Thea Gust in what was an entertaining Region 4B battle between the No. 3 Flyers and No. 2 Tornadoes in Irene Saturday night. The two teams went back and forth in the first half to give fans a thrilling brand of basketball, and Uecker and the Flyers held a 34-30 lead early in the third quarter. But a shooting exhibition from multiple girls from Centerville followed, and the Tornadoes began pulling away. When it was all said and done, Centerville connected on nine three-pointers — five in the third period — and saw four girls put up double figures in what was a 77-62 win.
Centerville moves on to the SoDak 16 while Freeman ends its season 15-7.
