Guard Norah Gessert going for the steal against the Bellevue West Thunderbirds. Gessert intercepted the pass from number eight. Millard West was up 38-23. She would then go for a fastbreak ending in a layup to put the Wildcats up 40-23. “They contribute in a lot of ways,” Kruger said. “One way they contribute is the obvious on the court production that you see, in points, rebounds, block shots and steals.
