Southeast girls down Grand Island

LINCOLN — Class A, No. 1 Lincoln Southeast ran away from Grand Island Senior High in a 57-24 victory Friday night.

The 1-2 punch of Jessica Shepard (18) and Alexa Kastanek (11) scored 29 points to lead the Knights. Islander coach Kelli Jeffries said Southeast showed why it was the No. 1 team in the state.

“They are probably the best team we have played this year,” Jeffries said. “Shepard has to be the best post player we have played and Kastonek is a great guard. We had a hard time matching up with them. They have a nice team.”

Brooke Gangwish led the Islanders with six points.

Grand Island will open the Heartland Athletic with Lincoln Northeast Friday at Lincoln North Star.
