Newell-Fonda Girls Basketball is a juggernaut and they will once again return to Des Moines. The Mustangs will defend their title starting next Wednesday at the 2021 State Tournament. The Mustangs punched their ticket on Wednesday Night, as they cruised past CAM 75-37. Newell-Fonda came out clicking on all cylinders building a 25-8 lead after the 1st quarter and 50-16 lead at the half. Mustangs had 4 players in double figures, Ella Larsen, Maggie Walker, and Macey and Bailey Sievers.
Mustangs are 23-1 and ranked #2 in Class 1A, their lone loss came to #1 Bishop Garrigan in December. Newell-Fonda drew the #2 seed in the State Tournament and would only see #1 seed Bishop Garrigan in the State Finals. That would be a rematch of last year’s 1A State Final, a game in which Newell-Fonda beat Garrigan in a thriller.
