An explosive season of Pirette basketball has finally come to an end, and what better way to finish off Coach Peggy Hosek’s final season than at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin. Last Friday marked the final game for both Hosek and six talented senior girls in the Class 2A State Semifinals after falling short to the Merkel Lady Badgers 56-47.

It was definitely the game to watch. Both the Pirettes and Lady Badgers played four quarters of tough competition, with Merkel going into halftime with a 31-21 advantage over Poth. However, the girls turned up the heat in the third quarter and fired back, outscoring their opponent 12-5, leaving only a three-point gap between both teams.

Unfortunately, all good things came to an end, and the buzzer went off finishing the game. The team was awarded their plaque and bronze medals, and the town of Poth cheered for the Pirettes for their great season. They definitely had a lot to be proud of.

Ashley Fuller led with 18 points, followed by Micah Weaver with 15, Kelli Kolodziej with 5, Devon Dylla with 4, Annika Eckel and Dominique DeHoyos had 2 each, and Danielle Felux with 1.

As heartbreaking as it was to see tears rolling down the girls’ faces, we know that they gave their all in the game. We will definitely miss the seniors next year; they contributed a big part to the team. They have shown us the true meaning of teamwork and talent. They will be walking off the court with four state medals, three bronzes and one silver. That’s quite an accomplishment for these players.

Greeting some of the underclassmen after the game, there are talks of being back up to Austin next year to finish up unfinished business. Even though we don’t know who will be filling Coach Hosek’s shoes yet, we are for sure ready to see those Pirettes get back on that court once again; and you can bet that they are shooting for the state tournament with motivation and dedication.

Pirettes forever.
