Elkhorn Valley had hoped for a better finish when they hosted West Holt on Saturday, but it wasn't meant to be.
The girls fell to the Huskies 73-37. The Falcons struggled to keep up from the opening tip, trailing after one quarter 31-14 and unable to pull back into the game.
Elkhorn Valley shot just 27 percent from the floor. Hannah Ollendick had 15 of the 37 Falcon points. Sierra Rystrom added nine and Amber Miller and Haley Fleetwood each added two.
It was a similar result for the boys, as they managed just two first-quarter points in a 76-35 loss. They did pull out a strong second quarter, dropping in 17 points, but they couldn't keep the momentum going in the loss.
Braedyn Ollendick had a team-high 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting. Brandon Evans and Brayden Effle added five points, each.
