Hovering around the .500 mark all year, the Melcher-Dallas girls’ basketball team had several positives to take away from their 2013-14 campaign. Defense was a strong point for the Saints; they gave up a little under 42 points per game on average in 23 contests, and were sixth best in the state in Class 1A in points scored versus points allowed. However, the “points scored” column was a little lacking this season, says head coach Jon Suntken. Melcher-Dallas will lose four seniors come the start of the 2014-15 season: Maddie Roland, Abbi Borchert, Hannah Wilson and MacKenzie Suntken.
