DAYTON — The Dayton girls basketball team went undefeated this weekend at the Dayton Holiday Tournament.

The Bulldogs downed LaCrosse-Washtucna on Friday night, 46-16, and followed that with a 54-33 win against Elgin on Saturday.

Madison Mings led Dayton against the Huskies as she finished 8-of-16 from the floor for 20 points. Sarah Phillips added 13 points to go along with a team-high six assists and seven steals.

“Being a young group of girls, I’ve been really pleased with the fact that they check their egos at the door,” Dayton coach Clayton Strong said. “All of them would love to lead us in scoring every game, but kids are buying into the fact that it’s a team deal. They’re happy for their teammates when they lead in scoring, but they also know there’s a lot more to it than scoring.”

Against LaCrosse-Washtucna, Mings took a backseat to Sidney Andrews, who finished with a game-high 13 points. Strong credited the Bulldogs’ defensive effort for the win against the Tigercats.

“It was a chance for us to get a lot of kids in and work on some things we needed to work on,” he said. “This gave us a chance to do that both in the full court and in the half court. Just things we may need down the stretch when we get into league games.”
