The Van Meter girls picked up a win in their first postseason contest against I35 44-25 last Tuesday night. Van Meter jumped out to a big lead in the first quarter and didn’t look back as they outscored the Roadrunners 23-8 in the first half. Both teams started slow in the 3rd quarter as Van Meter didn’t score for the first 6 and a half minutes of the 2nd half but found a way to win the quarter 7 – 6. The Bulldogs did a great job defensively for the entire game keeping I35 out of the lane and forcing them to shoot contested jump shots.
