GIBBON — The Class D-2 No. 2 Giltner girls basketball team had a lot of things at stake in Friday's district championship game against Bertrand. A third consecutive state appearance, district championship and eight-game win streak were all the things that could have been lost. Or won.
Giltner led 27-19 at the end of the first half and was on the winning end of a 16-3 fourth quarter advantage to earn that state bid with a 51-32 win in the D2, district 4 final held in Gibbon.
Giltner head coach Nancy Lockmon gave all of the credit to the Lady Hornet's personality that they have built over the year.
"It's nothing that I'm doing, it's these kids. They don't like to lose, they're very competitive, and they've played a lot of ball," said Lockmon.
