The lean mean sea of green. Live postgame interview with Rachel Steinhoff
The sea of green rocked the Hearnes Center while New Haven shattered Marceline’s 15-game winning streak, advancing into the Class 2 State Championship
The picturesque field of Shamrocks brought back memories of when New Haven rocked it at the Hearnes Center in 1997, 99, 98, 2001, 2002 during championship play. This year’s win against Marceline gives the Lady Shamrocks another shot at their unfinished business after finishing second behind Harrisburg last year.

Columbia, Mo. – The Chamois Lady Pirates continue making school history after defeating Mercer 62-39, holding them to just nine second half points. Prior to tip off all the talk was about Mercer’s Sierra Michaelis and her 31 pts/gm but afterwards in the press conference it was Chamois and Miranda Brandt who had everyone’s attention.

--Wednesday afternoon the Lady Shamrocks had their final practice in preparation for Thursday’s Girls Class 2 Semifinal against Marceline.
Marceline comes in on an 18 game winning streak after suffering a five-point loss to Glasgow on Jan. 5, the same team that Chamois defeated by ten in their district championship.
Marceline’s offensive outlook.
Drive, drive, drive…this is a team that likes to take it to the hole. They almost look to drive the ball first and shoot second and if there is a loose ball they are very aggressive at tracking them down.

Kirksville, Mo. – Saturday afternoon the Lady Pirates made history after laying it to Norborne 45-24 and the schools first ever trip to the Class 1 Final Four.
“Once it was over and I knew we were going to the final four the only way to explain how I felt is other than the birth of my two children this is the best feeling ever.” Coach Marty Gerloff said.
Chamois’ 5’ 11” powerhouse Miranda Brandt continued her dominance finishing with a double double for the second start game scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds.
The Lady Pirates have plowed there way into the final four, winning all five games by double digits, Glasgow being the only team to come close, lost by ten in the district championship.
