JORDAN VALLEY – The Jordan Valley varsity girls basketball team began their quest for a 1A state championship with a resounding home win over Crane last Friday.

Tied 34-34 at the half, the Jordan Valley team remained confident against one of the most powerful teams in 1A basketball.

The Crane girls were equally sure they would win.

Almost, but not quite.

Jordan Valley’s Taylor Warn unlocked the offense with a game-high 18 points, Kiana Quintero made critical plays down the stretch, and the team held off Crane 53-49 to win the High Desert League district crown. 

The intensity didn’t let up as the two teams fought hard throughout.
