BISMARCK – The Bismarck Century girls basketball program added another North Dakota High School Activities Association Class A state championship to its resume on Sunday, March 14.
The Patriots defeated Fargo Davies 58-47 in the state title game at the Bismarck Events Center to complete an undefeated 26-0 season. The championship is Century’s seventh is program history and sixth since 2010 – a 12 season stretch that has seen the Patriots play in the state title game eight times during that span.
For the third game in a row the Patriots were powered by the play of their sophomore guard Logan Nissley who finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds for Century. Nissley was 4-for-8 from 3-point range which was her strength the entire tournament. Nissley was a combined 13-for-27 from 3-point range during the tournament finishing with a three-day total of 67 points.
Senior forward Ashton Kinnebrew added 12 points for the Patriots.
Century led 32-22 at halftime and would later go ahead by as much as 19 points during the second half. Davies’ attempt at a second half comeback got some traction, but ultimately Century was able to thwart the late advances made by the Eagles.
Senior forward Taylor Fey led the Eagles with 14 points. Davies finished the season 24-3.
