Maidens take Divisional title, get ticket to State B

KALISPELL – The Ronan Maidens are hoping to repeat history 24 years after the 1992 girls basketball team won the school’s first state title, and they started by capturing the Western B Divisional title  Saturday, Feb. 27.

In a fourth quarter push, the Maidens clinched the championship game against Loyola Sacred Heart. The game was tied 38-38 at the beginning of the final quarter, however the Maidens outscored their opponent 16-9 in the fourth to secure the 54-47 victory. The win gave the Maidens a chance to continue their success at the State B Tournament.

In the semifinal game against Libby the previous night, Lee Camel hit four 3-pointers and ended the game with 24 points. McCrea and Alicia Camel added 30 points together to help push Ronan past Libby 61-44 and get their team to the championship game.
