A Big Win for Dexter Women’s Basketball

The Lady Dreads shock Huron in the district opener

By Jillian Chesney

On Monday, the women’s basketball team took home a great win against Huron, 41-36.

Huron went through their entire season with a 19-1 record and they were ranked 5th in the state. The Lady Dreads came out of nowhere and surprised everyone.

Dexter entered the third quarter ahead by just one point in a seesaw game. Towards the end of the game, the score was still close.

Junior Sammi Corcoran had the most points in the game with 15, including a pair of 3-pointers late that turned a 34-32 deficit into a 38-34 lead. After Corcoran sank a pair of free throws to make it 40-36 a couple minutes left,  freshman Kylee Niswonger finalized the scoring by making a free throw with four seconds left in the game.

What’s next: Dexter takes on Ann Arbor Skyline in the district semifinals at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Pioneer High School.
