Two coyote packs meet : Girls and Boy’s Basketball

By Thomas Garcia: Quay County Sun

SAN JON – Friday night was the battle of the packs.
The San Jon Coyotes played the Dora Coyotes in the first boys and girls basketball games in 2A action.

The San Jon Lady Coyotes started the season 1-0 with a win over the Dora Coyotes.

“It took us awhile to warm up,” said Coach Lacey Bidegain. “But once the girls started to play good defense we started taking advantage of offensive opportunities. We are playing well as a team. We have three seniors who are showing a lot of leadership out on the court.”

Late in the third period, with 1.4 seconds left on the clock San Jon senior Janay Brashear inbounded the ball to junior Rana Gibson who hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to give the Lady Coyotes a 23-22 lead.
The team only let Dora score four additional points in the final period for a final score of 35-26.

Gibson’s 3-pointer was a surprise to everyone in the building.

“I was thinking, ‘Just throw it up there.’ I shot it left handed and even I was shocked when it went in.” she said.
