After losing its Big Eight Conference opener to one of the leagues favored teams Madison Memorial, the Sun Prairie girls basketball team played a pair of games against two teams that likely won’t be in the conference race at season’s end — Beloit Memorial and Janesville Parker.

The Cardinals (3-1 overall, 2-1 Big Eight) took full advantage defeating the Purple Knights 59-19 on Thursday, before earning a 70-32 victory over the Vikings on Saturday.

“Just gaining the experience that we don’t have this early in the season is nice,” said Sun Prairie head coach John Olson. “It was nice to be able to get everybody in and run some of the systems, and then we can correct things and coach them up.”

The Cardinals sprinted to a 33-4 halftime lead and never looked back scoring their first road win of the 2019-20 season.

Jazzanay Seymore led the way with 17 points while Grace Radlund chipped in eight.

“Craig is undefeated and they will not be easy; we’ll see who steps up and gets better over the practice week,” Olson said.
