The girls basketball team (20–3) blew out the Wheaton Knights (1–15) 78–13 in their first playoff game Friday.

The Vikes started off strong, leading 50–7 at the end of the first half. The team scored on nearly every offensive possession and contained the Knights’ defense to keep their point total low.

During the third quarter, the Vikes’ defense prevented the Knights from scoring at all, while the team’s offense remained strong with 17 points. Guard Anna Krush and forwards Carter McGloon and Drew Meadows led the team in scoring. Krush had 12 points and McGloon and Meadows each contributed 11.

The Vikes will face the B–CC Barons in their second playoff game Tuesday at 6pm at home.
