DESHLER — The girls on Deshler’s basketball team were looking to prove to their coach that he was right.
Heath Birkel had a feeling his team could handle the adversity coming off a tough loss to Class C-2 No. 10 Superior two nights ago, a game where the Dragons had no answer for the Wildcats ability to rebound.
On Thursday, the Class D-1 No. 5 Dragons out-rebounded Kenesaw 39-13, capitalizing on plenty of second-chance opportunities to piece together some big scoring runs in a 69-30 win.
