Straber, Mueller lead Storm in near upset


Creek Valley ran with the top seed, 20-3 Hemingford Bobcats for most of the way on Thursday night, before falling 72-62 in the sub-district title game at Mitchell.

In fact, the Storm controlled things in the early going, as Jerry Straber put up double digit numbers by half time on her way to a 28-point night. But the second and fourth quarters determined the final outcome.

Although Creek Valley poured it on the the second period for 20 points, the Bobcats responded in even more manic terms, hitting for 25. Hemingford outscored the Storm 21-14 in the final eight minutes.

Creek Valley ended a successful season at 13-6.

Straber’s 28--which included four from beyond the arc--led all scorers. Summer Mueller hammered the Bobcats for 20 more. Both outdid Hemingford’s Natalie Gasseling, who put up 17 points.

Ten Bobcats lit the scoreboard in all.

In addition to Straber and Mueller, the Creek Valley cause was aided by Jessie Straber (6 points), Hannah Schievelbein (3), Jill Behrends (3), Shania Brown (1) and Stephanie Mitchell (1).
