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.

All in all, the Dreads are something to be excited about in the coming months.
Following last year when they ended their season early by losing in the first rounds of playoffs. This was disappointing for the boys, but this motivates them to move even further this year. Starting off this season 6-2, with their only losses were against Skyline and Chelsea, the Dreads are looking more solid now than ever. Their success starts with their freshman goalie, Kris Eberly. Eberly is strong and able to bring a new level of confidence to the team because of his previous experience on high-level teams. Continue reading “Winter Sports Briefs”

Her coach and teammates also motivate her by continuing to push her and holding her accountable in regards to soccer. Gaetino was trained by Damion Cook, a former lineman for the Detroit Lions.
