Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Dubuque Wahlert got off to a hot start, but couldn't sustain it as Sioux City Heelan rallied to knock the Golden Eagles out of the girls state tournament 77-60.

Wahlert jumped out of the gates to grab a 22-12 lead after the first quarter.  Heelan, however, led by 22 points from MaKayla Augustine, rallied to tie the game at 34 at the half.  The Crusaders outscored the Golden Eagles 43-26 in the second half to cruise to the victory.

Senior Tessa Leytom led Wahlert with a 23 point effort, as they'd finish the season with a 20-5 overall record.
