LINCOLN, Nebraska - Early in the first quarter, it looked like the dream might end.

Lucy Ghaifan, the 6-foot center from Grand Island Central Catholic School, scored six unanswered points, twisting and pushing her way to the basket and fueling her team to a 10-point lead over the Winnebago Lady Indians girls' basketball team.

Before the bright lights and raucous crowd at Pinnacle Bank Arena here in Lincoln, the girls did what they have done so often this season. They dug down deep and found the will to win.
