Records fall as Patriots lose in state quarterfinals
Numerous records were set in Pequot Lakes 100-68 girls' basketball loss
to New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva in the Class AA state
quarterfinals on Wednesday, March 19, at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis.
The Panthers senior guard Carlie Wagner, who will play for the
University of Minnesota Gophers next season, broke her own state
tournament record with 53 points. She had set the previous record twice
at state - scoring 50 points in last year's championship game win over
Braham and netting 48 points the previous year in a third-place win over
the Patriots, who finish 23-7.
Pequot Lakes did keep the game close in the first half, but Wagner
stayed hot in the second half with 27 points and the win. The Patriots
were led in scoring by Kayla Miller with 25 points and Vanessa Lane and
Katie White both with 19.
