It was a night to remember for Delavan-Darien senior Jaida Speth, but the night wasn’t as memorable for her team as the Comets dropped a Southern Lakes Conference girls basketball game against Elkhorn 63-55.

Speth racked up 14 points in the first half before finishing with a career-high 32 for the Comets (0-10 in the conference and 2-13 overall). She went 12 of 16 from the line, ending with more than half of her team’s points.

Elkhorn took a narrow three-point lead into halftime before pulling away for good, thanks in part to a big game from Payton Christensen.

Christensen finished with 23 points for the Elks. Teammate Haley Remington chipped in 14 points as Elkhorn improved to 3-8 and 8-10.
