SPRINGFIELD, Mo–The high school basketball playoffs continue to heat up and in Wednesday’s sectional game two-time defending state champs Strafford took on Mount Vernon. 

The Lady Indians on a bit of a hot streak, they’ve won 78 straight games. 

And they were cruising again in this one, Kyndall Compton with the steal and score. Strafford’s up 41-14.

Later Hayley Frank going behind the back and the side stop. That’s silky. It’s now 43-17 Indians up.

And then Logan Jones for two in transition. Strafford advances winning 69-43. The Indians now stand in second for most consecutive wins in MSHSAA history with 79 passing Northeast Nodaway.
