  • Wabasso was too big of a force for Sleepy Eye Public after beating both the boys and the girls basketball teams last week.
     
    On Jan. 23, the Sleepy Eye Public boys were on the road to take on the top team in the Tomahawk Conference.
     
    The Indians were quickly put in a bind after Wabasso’s offense struck early, forcing Sleepy Eye to scramble. The Rabbits relied on their top scorer, Neil Eichten, to penetrate the hoop. Eichten put up 34 points on the night. Wabasso also excelled in rebounds, which gave the Rabbits possession for most of the game.
     
    The Indians lost 42-69 on the night. Senior Brandon Polesky had a game-high 23 points to lead Sleepy Eye.
     
    On Jan. 24, the Sleepy Eye Public girls were four points away from beating the undefeated Rabbits in Sleepy Eye, but lost 71-74.
     
    Eighth grader Madison Heiderscheidt and sophomore Josie Schieffert led the way with 15 points apiece, while the rest of the Indians had balanced scoring. Possession was about equal all the way through, as the game quickly became an offensive battle. After back-to-back scoring and leads throughout the game, Wabasso mustered up enough points in the final minutes to take the close win.
     
    It was the second loss to Wabasso this season for the girls, after falling 56-73 on Dec. 10. The Sleepy Eye Public boys also lost to Wabasso on Dec. 10, after losing by one point, 75-76.
