District champs! Marion girls rout Mustangs, secure 27-3A title
(Marion) - Marion clinched the District 27-3A girls basketball championship Friday night with an 80-38 home thumping of Nixon-Smiley and a 42-40 Yoakum win over second-place Schulenburg. .

The combination of Marion's win and Schulenburg's loss gives the Bulldogs a two-game over the Shorthorns with only one game left on the schedule. Coach Kollyn McWhinney's Marion bunch is 12-1 in district play, 23-10 overall. Schulenburg dropped to 10-3 in district, so Tuesday's regular season finale between the teams will have no bearing on playoff seeding for Marion.

Brianna Randle erupted for 28 points to lead the Bulldogs offensively against Nixon-Smiley, and Madelyn Abrameit continued her stellar play this season with 23. Randle also contributed seven rebounds, while Abrameit finished with four rebounds, three assists, and two steals.

Lizzie Abrameit added eight points. Sierra Knight contributed seven points, four assists, and four steals. Samantha Hopper finished with six points, while Madison Batey, Shelby Osborne, Becca Svochak, and Lily Bek netted two apiece. Osborne and Svochak shared team-high rebounding honors with eight boards apiece.

Marion led 18-8 at the end of the first quarter, 41-13 by halftime, and 68-29 heading into the fourth period.

The Bulldogs conclude the regular season Tuesday with a 6:15 district road game in Schulenburg.

The Bulldogs caught fire in the third period, outscoring the Mustangs 21-12 to take a 47-32 cushion into the fourth quarter. Coach Jon Allen's bunch used a 20-6 run in the final frame to run away with a 29-point win.

Marion point guard Creet Rabenaldt led all scorers with 24 points and went 5-of-11 from three-point range.
