At Rexburg, the Sugar-Salem High School girls basketball team advanced to the 3A District 6 championship game for the fourth consecutive season with a 67-33 win over Teton on Wednesday in a battle of state ranked teams at Madison High School.
The No. 1 seeded Diggers, who make their 11th district championship game appearance in 13 seasons, play Monday versus the winner of Friday’s elimination game between No. 2 seeded Teton and No. 3 seeded South Fremont at Madison High School.
The Diggers led 28-22 at halftime before scoring 39 points in the second half. Sugar-Salem had 11 players score Wednesday.
“I feel like our biggest strengths all season has been our defense and our depth,” Sugar-Salem coach Crystal Dayley said. “Our depth is something that a lot of 3A teams don’t have. It’s hard to keep up with us for four quarters.”
Macey Fillmore had 16 points and Hailey Harris added 12 for Sugar-Salem (20-1). Waklee Kunz had nine points and Abigail Thomas added eight for Teton (15-7).
