East and Central highlight busy day for High School Basketball

By  | 

The Cheyenne East Boys and Girls basketball teams complete the sweep of Central. The Thunderbirds girls and boys win by a combined 44 points. So, both trophies will reside at East High School for the next year.
Coach Jeff Bailey of the East boys said this after the game. "Well that has been another emphasis of our team the entire year...to guard and to do a better job of help side defense.We had great vision today on the ball.Josh is a great player.He got loose a few times. But for the most part as a team we did a good job of containing and forcing them to shoot some pretty tough shots."

East Girls Senior Guard Rachel Erickson said, "This part of conference , we just really came together as a team and decided we aren't going to win by 15.We know we can blow this team out.
So we were going to keep pushing and pressing pressing pressing and pressing and that's just what we did.We could've laid back once we were ahead by 20 but we decided why not go out our final game and final rivalry game for all the seniors.We just wanted to go out with a bang."
Coach Rusty Horsely loves the fact in which they swept the Lady Indians. "It's nice. It's tough playing them and they are always good and they are well coached.There is a lot of pride and tradition in this game.And for them to bring the trophy home to us is a really nice thing."

While both the rivalry games were going on, The South Bison Boys team had to face Cody Kelley and the Gillette Camels. If you missed this one, you missed to great performances by Kelley and Cummings.

Cummings finished with a school record 33 and Kelley topped him by scoring 40. Gillette wins 83-70
