As far as I can tell, the ranks of the undefeated girls teams was cut in half last night as #1AAAA Hopkins and #3A Parkers Prairie went down to defeat.
Wayzata shocked Hopkins 66-58. Wayzata led 28-25 at the half and also "won" the 2nd half 38-33. Marissa Grossfeld led Wayzata with 25 points while Kayla Timmerman added 17. Nia and Sydney Coffey combined for 36 points for Hopkins, but the Royals were without Mikaala Shackleford and Viria Livingston for the game.
Sebeka beat Parkers Prairie 62-55. It was Parkers Prairie's 1st loss after 23 straight wins.
In the MIAC, the St. Mary's women scored the game's last 9 points to surprise host St. Olaf 55-52. Jessica Thone had 18 points and 4 assists, and Jamie Stefeley 12 points and 6 boards for St. Mary's. Elise Raney had 14 points and 14 boards for the Oles. Concordia defeated Bethel 55-50 in the other semi.
The women's playoffs continue Thursday with St. Mary's at St. Thomas, and Concordia at Gustavus.
The men open post-season play tonight with Bethel at St.Olaf, and St. John's at Augsburg.
