Lady Broncs get in the win column

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan High School girls basketball team picked up its first win of the season at the Cheyenne Tournament Friday. The Lady Broncs edged Riverton 49-44 to improve to 1-6 on the season.

Annie Mitzel paced Sheridan with 13 points, while Aniston Beard, Mollie Morris and Preslee Moser each tallied seven points.

The Lady Broncs came out of the gates firing, leading 27-23 at halftime. A seven-point third quarter, however, had Sheridan trailing 35-34 entering the game’s final eight minutes. But seven points from Mitzel in the fourth period helped her team rally for the victory.
