MOUNTAIN VIEW – The Mountain View girls took two hard losses last weekend as they were pitted against teams from Pinedale and Lander.

The girls started off on Friday against the Lady Wranglers from Pinedale and led most of the game. They started to falter due to substitutions brought about by foul trouble. When the main players were put back in the game, it was tied. With 8.3 seconds left on the clock, the Lady Buffs were one point behind. A foul on Mountain View raised that to a three-point deficit. As the seconds ticked, the Lady Buffs were unable to overcome in a tight game and took a 38-41 loss.

The next day, when the Buffs faced the Lander Tigers, they found themselves in another close one, but once again fell short, as they took a 43-51 loss.

The Buffs have been led this season by their lone senior, McKell Hadlock, who stepped up to aid them in both games this weekend. Hannah Bugas, Madison Vitt and Aubrey Newton have also been crucial for the Buffs’ game throughout the season and played big parts in the games against Pinedale and Lander.

“We lost two close games we should have won this weekend,” Newton said. “But, it’s not over. We’re going to keep fighting, and we’ll get closer.”

As the reginonal tournament draws closer, the Lady Buffs have continued to overcome obstacles throughout the season and are looking to continue to improve as they continue on the road to the post season.
