By Wade Linville –

Wins haven’t come easy for the Western Brown varsity basketball squad this season, but they continue to show signs of improvement as the season rolls along. On Jan. 9, the Western Brown Lady Broncos, a team with only three seniors, were able to find success while playing host to the Bethel-Tate Lady Tigers, claiming a 53-38 victory in a bout that saw them trailing 13-12 after the first quarter of play.
The Lady Broncos were able to outscore the Tigers 18-9 in the second quarter to hold a 30-22 lead at halftime.
The Lady Broncos went on to outscore the Tigers 23-16 in the second half to seal the 15-point victory.
Leading the way in scoring for the Lady Broncos was one of their three seniors, Bailie Darnall.
Darnall buried four shots from inside the arc, drained one three-pointer, and connected on four-of-five attempts from the foul line to finish with 15 points.
Western Brown’s junior guard Cana Kleemeyer also put together a good night on the offensive end to finish with nine points, burying two shots from inside the arc, sinking one three-pointer, and burying two-of-two attempts from the foul line.
Western Brown senior Kaitlyn Huseman finished with eight points, while junior teammate Maddy    Whisman contributed with five points.
Rounding out Western Brown’s scoring in the Jan. 9 win were Tessa Pinkerton, Rylie Young, Taylor Barthel, and Gracie Fischer with four points each.

“They are still trying to find their way,” Overstake said of his Lady Broncos.
