Shannon Messersmith’s Lady Wildcats basketball team looks to be peaking at the right time.

The Wildcats blew through their D2-8 subdistrict last week with a 62-38 win over Elwood and a 75-54 win over Wauneta-Palisade. 

The only team standing in front of the Lady Wildcats from a berth in the D2 state tournament next week is the fourth-ranked, 21-3 Red Cloud Warriors. 

Red Cloud defeated Axtell in the finals of the D2-7 subdistrict to earn the opportunity to go up against the Lady Wildcats Friday in the district final. 

The two teams will square off this Friday in the D2-4 District Final to be held at the Lexington High School gym beginning at 7 p.m. CT.

Since the subdistrict win, Messersmith has been watching film and preparing for their biggest game of the season.
