Another rough week for the West Central Blue Devils girls’ basketball team was compounded by the loss of leading scorer Kenzie Squires for the remainder of the season.

Squires sprained her ankle early in the season, and she has played through some pain since the injury. However, after last week’s games, she went to see a doctor after the pain continued to get worse after games. After examining her ankle, the doctor recommended shutting her down for the rest of the season.
