Jodi Stanley wanted the Little Snake River Valley (Wyo.) School girls varsity basketball team to get out to a fast start in its first-round playoff match-up with Hulett. In a rare early morning game — the contest tipped off at 9 a.m. in Casper, Wyo. — Stanley, the girls head coach, said a fast start would ensure the Rattlers wouldn’t have a let down later in the game. The Rattlers did just that, jumping out to a 19-2 lead after the first quarter, then using a consistent offense en route to a 66-32 victory. “We had a great start in the first quarter and never really looked back,” Stanley said. “It was nice to get the first game out of the way, and I thought we played pretty well.”
