Below you will find a short recap of each team for the day. For a full detailed schedule for each sport on Thursday, download the mobile app.
Coach Kris Clark said the pre-game message was to leave it all out on the court and play with their heart. “We’re a family now on,” he said.
They’ll be awarded the silver medal on Friday.
Trey Toliver bowled 84 in transition and with a speed adjustment bowled 202 in the following game. Jeremiah Ellis bowled a clean game (no open frames). Kayla Brewer bowled a huge score of 140 to secure a silver medal in her division. Jeremiah Ellis secured his third gold mdeal of the week on Thursday.
In the gold medal match, South Dakota got off to a quick start and never looked back. MO Magic again displayed character and began chipping away at the deficit. In the end MO Magic came up short and earned the silver medal, losing 22-7. Although it was a tough loss for the team, MO Magic’s fan club made it much easier to bear with their continued cheers and positive reinforcement.
The section below shows what delegates have been writing blogs for us. These are new blogs written on Wednesday night to recap that day and previous day’s activities. To view all blogs written earlier this week, visit our WordPress site.
With the addition of an athlete-leader on our Team Missouri staff, we wanted to utilize Allison’s skillset and try something new. So we’re excited to announce Allison’s FOURTH recap show, which you can view here. On Thursday night, she talked to the basketball team about the fun they’ve been having this week and recapping their gold-medal game vs. Alaska.
Only ONE more day of competition (swimming, tennis and powerlifting), while track and field, bocce and basketball all receive their medals tomorrow.
Again, the best way to stay up to date and view the next day’s schedule is to download the Team Missouri mobile app. For more info on the app, see below.
