Thursday night marks what should be an epic showdown in high school girls basketball, as Class 1A’s top two teams face off in Algona. #1 Newell-Fonda travels to take on #2 Bishop Garrigan. Newell-Fonda features four players averaging double figures and they will put their 58 game winning streak on the line. Bishop Garrigan is unbeaten and led by D-1 recruit Audi Crooks and their other returning all state selection Molly Joyce. Here’s comments from Newell-Fonda Head Coach Dick Jungers on the match up.
It will be a rematch of last year’s instant classic in the 1A State Finals, where a late rally lifted Newell-Fonda to a 65-63 win to claim their 2nd consecutive State Title.
