PREP ROUNDUP: Nevada Union girls fall in tourney title game

The Lady Miners fell behind early, trailing 22-10 after one quarter. They would pull to within four at 42-38 after three quarters, but Reed pulled away in the fourth quarter.

Nevada Union had been on a tear leading up to the game with Reed, beating Damonte Ranch, 61-48, Pyramid Lake, 70-2, and McQueen, 54-43, to earn their spot in the title game.

In the semifinal win over McQueen, the Lady Miners were led by Meadow Aragon with 20 points and Greta Kramer with 15 points.

The Lady Bruins (9-3) will look for their third tourney championship of the season when they face Ponderosa in the title game today.



The Miners snapped a seven-game losing streak with a victory over Oakmont in the second round of the Kendall Arnett Tournament Friday.

Nevada Union (5-8) jumped out to a 14-4 edge after one quarter, but Oakmont charged back to pull within two, 26-24, at halftime. The Miners would extend their lead in the second half and hold off any late runs by Oakmont to grab their fifth win of the season.
