With most of its team back from last season, the Rosholt High School girls basketball team has continued to progress under first-year head coach Megan Boldig.
After finishing 8-15 last season, the Hornets carried a 10-7 record into their matchup at home against Tri-County (5-11, 4-8) on Tuesday, Feb. 6, where Tri-County rallied in the fourth quarter and held a 58-57 lead with under 10 seconds to play.
Rosholt had a pair of looks near the basket in the closing seconds but was unable to get either to fall, as it dropped a 58-57 decision.
The Hornets (10-8, 9-5) will look to rebound when they host Tigerton (3-14, 2-12) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, which will be the start of a four-game stretch of Central Wisconsin Conference-10 (CWC-10) games to end the team’s regular season.
“It’s been up and down,” said Boldig of this season. “It’s an improvement from last year, and they’re working very hard.”
Rosholt entered this season with all but three regulars back from last season’s team that finished 8-15 overall and 6-11 in the CWC-10.
