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.

In Doug Peirick’s opening remarks he said, “We just run out of gas.  By the fourth quarter we were dead tired and had little left.  That’s a good team and congratulations to them.  I can’t deny we didn’t get beat by a better team tonight.”
