The Van Meter girls varsity team fell to 5th ranked (2A) North Linn on Wednesday night by a score of 72-34 in the Regional Final. Early foul trouble and turnovers really hurt the Bulldogs and they were never really able to find their rhythm throughout the course of the game. The Bulldogs end the season with a record of 15 – 9 and 1 game away from advancing to the state tournament.

With 13 points last night, Clair Lauterbach (Sr) surpassed 1000 points for her career. Fellow senior, Natalie Barth, finished 9 rebounds shy of 500 for her career. We can’t thank these two enough for the time and energy they committed to the program over their high school careers. We will also miss our 2 senior managers, Daelynn Coppinger and Audrey Gruss, and all their help and support over the last 3 years.

On behalf of the coaching staff, we would like to thank parents, students and community members for their support over the season and we can’t wait to get back to work during the offseason.
