SPEARFISH — Like the rest of the Mount Vernon/Plankinton girls’ basketball team, guard Becca Glanzer is experiencing her first Class A state basketball tournament as a player. However, unlike the rest of her team, she has played in the state tournament on two different levels.
SPEARFISH — Winner point guard Kelsey Bertram knows what it feels like to compete in a state title game. As a member of the Warrior volleyball team, the junior helped Winner to a runner-up finish at the Class A volleyball tournament this fall, and she wanted another shot at a state championship. Bertram scored 18 points to helped her team beat Elk Point-Jefferson 59-55 to send Winner to the Class A state girls’ basketball championship. The Warriors (23-1) take on No. 1 seed St. Thomas More at 9 p.m. CDT today in Spearfish.
