Manogue girls seeking third Region title

Nothing in sports is a given, but the Bishop Manogue girls basketball team has to be pretty confident as it chases its third consecutive Region championship.

The Miners have not lost to a Northern Nevada team since Jan. 9, 2015, a streak of 48 straights wins, and have rolled through this season, going 16-0 in league play.

The Miners are healthy and hungry heading into the Northern 4A Regional tournament. Manogue hosts McQueen (10-6) in a quarterfinal game, at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Manogue’s closest league game was a 69-59 win over Reno on Dec. 15. The Huskies are the top seed from the High Desert League, with a 15-1 record, that loss to the Miners the lone blemish.

Kenna Holt (11) and Malia Holt (5) will help lead the Miners as the Northern 4A Regional gets underway Wednesday.
