Junior Samantha Oase left Grand Forks with a little souvenir of her trip to the state girls basketball tournament.
“Sam Oase made the all-state all tournament team. She had another nice tournament for us,” Hettinger-Scranton coach Kelly Pierce said.
“The sky is the limit for her,” the coach added.
Oase will be a returning starter for Pierce next season.
In three games at the tournament, Oase scored 12 against the eventual state champions from Langdon/Erdmore/Munich, then followed with 20 points against LaMoure-Litchville/Marion and added another 20 points against Shiloh Christian.
Oase also had two double-doubles, snagging 14 rebounds against LaMoure-Litchville/Marion and 12 against the Sky Hawks.
