Vermillion's junior varsity girls won twice and lost twice in their four most recent games through last weekend.
"We have been struggling with teams that have been pressing us full-court," said Coach Lori Jerred, "and turnovers have plagued us recently." However, the coach said the team has been getting good contributions from everyone but needs to work on taking care of the basketball better.
At West Central the Tanagers were down only 28-25 after three periods but failed to score in the fourth quarter in a 39-25 loss. Lizzie Bye scored eight points, Claire Jones seven and Bailey Carlson five. Jones had five rebounds, Val Robinson four rebounds and Bye five assists.
Vermillion reversed a two-point halftime deficit in a 43-41 win at Canton. Robinson had seven points and two assists, Lexi Regnerus six points, Jones five points and Bye five boards and five assists.
The Tanagers came all the way back from a 10-2 first-quarter deficit to beat Beresford, 36-30, behind 11 points by Jones, seven by Robinson, six by Morgan Erickson and five by Regnerus. Erickson had four rebounds and Jones and Bye five boards apiece.
Dell Rapids defeated VHS, 42-34. Kelly Amundson and Bye had four rebounds each and Robinson three assists and five rebounds.
