Arcadia, Wis. - (WXOW) - Division 3 Arcadia girls basketball took advantage of a first-half surge to beat visiting Elk Mound in their regional game.
Arcadia came out strong, with senior Linzy Sendelbach able to work inside and get the Raiders on the board. The real weapon was a flurry of passing around the perimeter, allowing juniors Chole Halverson and Mercedes Romo to sink some three-point shots. The Raiders put up 11 points before Elk Mound was able to get anything going.
It was Elk Mound freshman Stella Rhude who got the team's first points, finding an open lane to make it 11-2.
The Raiders proved too much, however with more passing to the outside corners. Freshman Autumn Passehl was able to find some separation as she sunk it from three-point territory. By half-time, it was 39-10 and when the final buzzer sounded it was Arcadia with the 59-32 victory.
They now will play Prescott who defeated West Salem in a 67-55 final.
