A quintet of Jayettes played their final prep games on their home hardwood Friday, which also happened to be the last home game for head coach Skylar Wolf, who has resigned and will be taking a position at a different school in August.

Wolf has been at the helm for three years, and is currently 9-55 overall and 0-41 in Raccoon River Conference competition.

Bondurant-Farrar (13-5, 12-5) was the opponent, and won their eighth straight in the series thanks in part to a 26-5 edge in the first quarter. Perry (2-19, 0-17) trailed, 38-17, at the half and stood no chance of making up the difference, eventually falling, 75-37.

Honored before the game were seniors Quinn Whiton, Kennedy Tunink, Michelle Tobar, Lanie Fish, and Phoebe Stewart.

The five quintet started and played an extended period Friday, but by the time regular starters Lydia Olejniczak and Jayna Kenney came into the game Perry trailed, 18-0. The hosts were outscored only 20-17 over the remainder of the first half, but by then the damage was enough.

Olejniczak finished with 17 points, with Tobar scoring eight points. Whiton and Kenney had five points apiece, with Tunink adding two points.

Katelyn Lappe (21), Riley Gilroy (15), and Avery Fried (12) led the Lady Jays. Mia Miller had eight points, Katie Fogarty and Casi Waterhouse seven each, Brenna Petersen three, and Chesney Steenhoek two.

Perry travels to Boone Wednesday for a Class 4A Region 8 contest. The winner faces host Denison-Schleswig Saturday, with the Region 4 Final set for Feb. 23.
