It was quite the finish to the girls’ Peach Basket game at Kelly Walsh on Thursday night. Katelynn Campbell’s name is now part of Natrona County High School lore.
Campbell sank a 35-foot three-point shot at the buzzer to give the Fillies a 45-44 victory over their crosstown rivals and on the Trojans’ home floor.
Trailing 44-42 and with five seconds left, NC head coach Brian Costello called timeout.
After the timeout, here’s what happened, pandemonium if you’re an NC fan and disbelief if you’re a KW fan.
Natrona earned a sweep of the series in 2019-2020. The Fillies beat the Trojans at NC, 47-42, back on Dec. 19, 2019.
As for the boys’ game, Kelly Walsh accomplished a first in the series. The Trojans have beaten the Mustangs four consecutive times in the Peach Basket portion of the series thanks to a 52-40 victory at KW Thursday night.
Both schools finish their regular season on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
