Southeast Warren’s girls’ basketball team pulled off a surprising upset of Twin Cedars Thursday night in a 45 – 44 defeat of the Sabers. Coach Justin Nolte said after the game that his girls didn’t have much energy on the court. His team had a 44 – 42 lead with under ten seconds in the game, when the Warhawks drained a three to put them up by a point. The Sabers had a chance to tie or win at the free throw line at the very end, but couldn’t make their free throws. Alee Hugen had 22 points to lead the way for the now 17 – 3 Twin Cedars’ girls. The Sabers’ boys’ coach, Alan Stewart said that his guys were playing like the weather in the first half – a little cold, as his guys only held a one point lead. They had a monstrous second half, though and prevailed 75 – 47. Their record is now 11 – 8, and each team will wrap up their regular season with a doubleheader against rival Melcher-Dallas on Tuesday.
