Greybull Middle School girls basketball teams went a combined 3-2 last week in games against Burlington and Ten Sleep.
The eighth graders earn a split, beating Burlington 23-20 on Nov. 7 but losing to Ten Sleep 22-19 on Nov. 10.  The contests followed on the heels of a 33-10 win over Riverside on Nov. 10.
Coach Rebecka Eichelberger called them “three great games” for her team. “We continue to work on team dynamics and keeping control of the ball,” she said. “Our defense has really stepped up as a team.  We have had great on-ball defense and help-side which helped us win against Burlington.” 
The seventh graders turned in a couple of dominant performances, routing Burlington 37-11 and topping Ten Sleep 18-2 in two-quarters.
“We got off to a slow start against Burlington but luckily we came alive in the fourth quarter,” said Coach Tami Wright.
She said her team wanted to play four quarters against Ten Sleep, but with just six players on their roster, the Pioneers preferred to play just two.
Defense sparked the Lady Buffs. “It was hard for (Ten Sleep) to get the ball down to set up a play,” said Wright. “Our guards did a great job of looking for the opportunity to steal it and take it down for a layup.”
Coach Jamie Keisel reports that the sixth graders lost their only game of the week, falling to Burlington 31-10 on Nov. 7.
