Jodi Stanley said the Little Snake River Valley (Wyo.) School girls varsity basketball team wanted to come out strong Saturday in the finals of the 1A West Regional Tournament. The Rattlers wasted no time, jumping out to a 25-6 lead after the first quarter and cruising to a 70-46 victory over Cokeville. “We forced a lot of turnovers in the first four minutes of play and we capitalized on them and set the tone for the rest of the game,” said Stanley, the Rattlers head coach. “I think we made them a little nervous early, but they played us even for the next three quarters. We just came out strong early.” Senior Morgan Wille started the Rattlers off with two steals, which turned into four quick points to give LSRV a 4-0 lead.
