Blooming Prairie Awesome Blossoms girls basketball team 2-0 after 52-50 win at Kenyon/Wanamingo Friday evening

After opening the 2023-2024 season with a win in Waseca Tuesday evening, the Blooming Prairie Awesome Blossoms girls basketball team was back out on the road to Kenyon Friday evening to take on the Knights of Kenyon/Wanamingo in the Gopher Conference, and Shawntee Snyder poured in 22 points to help lead the Blossoms to a hard-fought, 52-50 win.

The game was knotted at 24 apiece at the half, and while the Knights held the edge at the free-throw line by going 4 for 4 to 6 for 12 for Blooming Prairie, the Blossoms had the advantage in 3-point shooting by draining four of them in the contest, to none for the Knights.  Besides Snyder’s 22 points, Claire Schwarz tallied nine points, Addion Doocy added eight points, Ella Smith drained a 3 on her way to seven points, and Macy Lembke drilled a pair of 3’s for six points in the win.

The Blossoms are out to a 2-0 start for new Head Coach John Worke, and they were scheduled to be right back into action this (Saturday) afternoon versus Cannon Falls for their home opener, followed by another home game coming up Tuesday night versus Waterville-Elysian-Morristown in the Gopher Conference, with tip-off at 7:15 p.m. that evening.
