Fueled by another big night from the duo of Racquel Wientjes and Chloe Lamb, Sully Buttes downed Sanborn Central/Woonsocket 63-48 to claim its second consecutive Class B state title Saturday night in Huron.

Wientjes led all scorers with 25 points on 9 of 13 shooting with five 3-pointers. She added six boards, two assists, two steals and a couple of blocks.

Lamb notched 19 points to go with eight assists and three steals.

Sully Buttes went 13-for-26 from the field in the first half, then hit eight of its nine attempts in the second half.

Myah Selland was the lone Blackhawk to finish in double figures, scoring 23 points on 8 of 20 shooting. The SDSU commit added eight boards, five assists, two blocks and three steals. Kayla Olson finished with four assists, while Abby Doering tallied a couple of steals.

Selland accounted for seven of the Blackhawks’ first 11 points, helping the team get out to an 11-4 advantage less than four minutes in. But a 3-pointer by Lamb helped to stabilize Sully Buttes, which went on to build a 33-23 halftime lead.

SCW managed to cut the deficit to single digits twice in the third quarter, but then Sully Buttes seized control, with about four minutes left when a couple of free throws from Wientjes pushed the lead back to double digits where it would remain the rest of the way.

SB led by as many as 20 in the fourth quarter.

It’s the second straight title for Sully Buttes and its fourth since 2007.
