Fillmore County was well represented in the MUDECAS girls' basketball tournaments this past week, as Exeter-Milligan won the "A" Division crown and Bruning-Davenport/Shickley took the "B" Division championship in Beatrice.

The Timberwolf girls remain undefeated on the season with a 44-30 victory over Palmyra in the "A" Division MUDECAS Final on Friday night. Mariah Bigelow tossed in 12 points and Heather Pribyl added 11 points and 20 rebounds for 14-0 E-M, which took the top spot in wild card points in D-1 with the win.

Kelsey Moore added nine points in the victory over the 11-2, Class C-2 Panthers. Taylor Slezak contributed five points in the win and Taylor Erdkamp added five rebounds and three points. Jennifer Pribyl and Megan Zwickl each had a bucket for the Timberwolves, who led 16-12 at the break and blew the contest open with a 17-7 advantage in the final period.

The stout defensive effort was needed for E-M, as the Timberwolves shot just 29 percent from the field (17-for-58) and 45 percent (10-for-22) from the freethrow line.
