Sheridan girls beat Central, head to championship game

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan High School Lady Broncs won their game against Cheyenne Central Thursday night 57-39 and will square off against the Gillette Camels today at 1 p.m.

“We came out like we should,” said Coach Jessica Pickett.

“We were down a big part of our team, and everybody stepped up and did what they needed to do,” Pickett said, referring to the fact that one of the team’s top scorers, Taylor Townsend, broke her wrist last week and is out for the season. “They had to pick up the slack, and they did. The game was great an balanced. Everyone stepped up and did their part.”

Scorers in the night’s game were Robbi Ryan with 15, Maddy McClure, 12, Dylan Wright, 9, Megan Myers, 5 and Emily Julian and Molly Ligocki with 4 apiece.

Pickett said tomorrow’s game against the Camels will determine whether her team is first or second within the region.

“The Gillette team is quick, they’re scrappy,” she said. “Right now, we’re at a point in the season where every game matters, so we’re really focusing on the details — defense, not getting into foul trouble.”

Pickett extended thanks to the Sheridan supporters who made the drive to cheer on her team at the away game.

“We saw a lot of parents and grandparents,” she said. “It’s awesome to see them coming and supporting our girls. It makes me proud to be from Sheridan.”

Last year, the SHS Lady Broncs were regional champions and finished third at state.
