Alyssa Bullock stands next to Miranda Brandt as she holds the schools first ever state trophy. It was not the ending they hoped for but what they gave their community was more than they could imagine.
Columbia, Mo. – If Chamois and Walnut Grove faced off ten times they’d both win five. After the opening tip it was obvious that Saturday’s Girls Class 1 State Championship would come down to the wire. Both teams battled back and fourth with 13 lead change and 13 times when the score was tied with neither team taking more than a six point lead.
Miranda Brandt finished her illustrious high school career with a “Michael Jordan” like performance, tearing apart Walnut Grove’s defense and nearly leading her team to Chamois High School’s first ever State Championship. Brandt was practically unstoppable, finishing with a game high 31 points and 13 rebounds.
