MEDIAPOLIS, Iowa (AP) — You could say the girls on the Mediapolis High basketball team are like sisters to each other. And there’s a good chance you’d be right. The Bullettes feature four sets of sisters on a team that is 20-1 and ranked seventh in Iowa for its class. And that doesn’t even count Aubrey Siegle and her sibling, Chloe, the team manager. The girls recently won their conference and could become the first team from Mediapolis to earn a berth in the state tournament in Des Moines since 1987. Senior Allison Hedges says the sisters are often able to guess what they’re going to do because they’ve played together so much.
