The loss means the end of Rachel Leerar’s career in red and white; she will play next season at the University of Nebraska Kearney. Leerar will go down as one of the best to play at West Hancock. She is the all-time career leader in points scored and will have a chance to become the school’s first four-time all-stater later this postseason.
