Melcher-Dallas Teams Swept by Meskwaki

Delaney Jensen scored 16 points, and Mackenzie Suntken added 10 more, but it wasn’t enough for the Melcher-Dallas girls basketball team, who fell 50-45 against Meskwaki Settlement in Tama Saturday.

The loss drops the Saints to 3-6 overall, entering one final Bluegrass Conference game against Mormon Trail on Tuesday.

A 27-point effort by Ross Dawson couldn’t help the Melcher-Dallas boys basketball team notch their first win of the season on Saturday, as the Saints dropped a non-conference game against Meskwaki Settlement 75-54.

The Melcher-Dallas boys are now 0-7 overall, and have one more shot at a victory before Christmas, when they host Mormon Trail on Tuesday.
