03/02/2017 - CLASS A GIRLS BASKETBALL: Pius X Reaches First "A" Semifinal By Defeating Defending Champ East

By Kellan Heavican

Lincoln Pius X continues to set records.  Last time- they punched their first ticket to the state tournament while being in Class A.  Thursday night, they continued that trend by getting to their first ever semifinal in Class A.


The Thunderbolts’ strong start to the second-quarter proved to be too much for Lincoln East as the Bolts beat the defending Class A State Champions Thursday Night at Pinnacle Bank Arena 44-36.


Pius (16-7) build an 11-point advantage with 3:24 left after a three from Briley  Sebek and free throws from Lauren Taubenheim.  East (19-7) responded to close the halftime deficit to 23-19.


Pius’s lead grew to 36-22 with 30 seconds left after Taubenheim’s layup.  Allison Roh responded by beating the third-quarter buzzer and pulled them within 11.  Roh again hit a long three with 46 seconds left to pull within seven, but Pius responded by hitting six of seven from the foul line.

Taubenheim led Pius with 12 and Lindsey Nottleman finished with 10.  Regan Sankey had a game-high 13. Roh finished with 10.

Pius X will take on Millard South Friday night at 8:45.  The winner advances to the state championship.
