Carr also had an assist, 3 rebounds and a steal. Hollister picked up three rebounds and five steals. Leach had three rebounds and a steal.

As a team the Vikes hit just four of sank five of 31 free-throw attempts and had 35 turnovers. The Oilers had 31 rebounds to the Vikes’ 26.

This week, the Vikings got some extra experience as they hosted the Freshman/Sophomore Girls’ Basketball Tournament Monday evening. Wheatland, Lingle-Fort Laramie and Wheatland joined the Vikes to make up the field. Wheatland topped Lusk for the title, 29-28.
