VHS freshmen victims of blitz The VHS freshmen Tanagers were shot down by the Yankton High School freshmen Bucks 53-26 in boys basketball Jan. 28 at Yankton after falling prey to an 18-4 third-quarter deficit.
"Offensively, we struggled to get the ball in the hole," said Vermillion Coach Devin Schwiesow. "We also missed 21 free throws, being under 40 percent from the line. We were not mentally ready to play in this ball game."
The Tanagers trailed 13-7 at the end of the first period, trailed 22-13 at halftime, and then trailed 40-17 going into the fourth quarter.
The loss dropped Vermillion to a record of 4-4, while YHS freshmen improved to 9-0.
