The Independence Mustangs ended the Union girls basketball season February 15, pulling away early and coasting in the second half for a 57-30 victory in sub-state play. The Knights finished the season with a 12-9 record. Union will lose seniors Breann Bader and Tessa Reiter to graduation, but anticipate the return of the remaining members of the varsity squad, two juniors and five freshmen, to lead the team in 2015.
