The 17-5 Emmetsburg Lady E-Hawks will travel to Garner-Hayfield High School on Wednesday to face 21-2 Osage in the Class 2A Region 2 Regional Championship. The girls enter the contest after defeating Manson-Northwest Webster (MNW) on Tuesday night, 56-19, and Sioux Central on Friday night, 51-31.

Tuesday's dominant victory over the Cougars saw the Lady E-Hawks firing on all cylinders with an explosive first half of basketball on offense and defense. The girls outscored MNW 35-10 by halftime and carried their momentum through to the final buzzer.

Senior Molly Schany had another stellar performance, scoring 24 points and grabbing eight rebounds.

Junior Abbie Schany wasn't very far behind with 19 points, hitting five of six at the free throw line, and recovering three rebounds under the net.

On Friday night, the Lady E-Hawks hosted the Rebels of Sioux Central in a physical contest that would see the girls playing aggressive full court basketball.

The girls would gradually chip away at the Rebels until a second half offensive press would see Sioux Central resort to a foul-ridden fourth quarter to try and stop the E-Hawk momentum but ultimately find little success.

Molly Schany would put up 16 points while Abbie scored 14 for the Lady E-Hawks. Molly would also fight for eight rebounds for the girls during the contest.

Hailey Foxhoven would score seven points and grab two rebounds with two assists.
