Senior girls step it up for basketball win

In his tenure as girls basketball coach, Dan Marshall’s varsity teams had never lost two games in a row until last week. His Lady Bulldogs made sure that the streak would not extend to three as they beat Orange Glen in the Dawg House 67-40 in a game that really wasn’t that close.

“Our seniors stepped it up and we got a great game out of freshman Paige Conroy,” said Marshall. “It all added up to our first league win.”

Kellie Schoepp, Chelsea Maurer and Janet Nasman all recorded double doubles in the win. All three scored 15 points.

Schoepp also added 13 rebounds, had three assists and recorded two steals. Maurer grabbed 10 boards, dished off five assists and had two steals. Nasman was her usual presence under the boards as she recorded 11 rebounds, blocked four shots, had a steal and recorded two assists.

Conroy grabbed six rebounds from her guard position, scored two points, had an assist and a steal.

Linze Cole scored nine points, played excellent defense, had a steal and three rebounds. Jessica Beam (4), Felisha Stead (2), Christina Flores (3) and Morgan Gross (2) also scored in the win.

The entire team played well on defense. The Lady Dawgs defense not only forced 12 turnovers they forced bad shots, caused two thirty second violations and stole an inbounds pass.

“Chelsea, Kellie and Janet all had great games. Having three players record a double double in a Valley League game is big. I can’t remember that ever happening before,” stated Marshall.

The win not only broke the longest losing streak in Marshall’s tenure. It improved the Lady Bulldogs season record to 12-5. The Lady bulldogs are 1-2 in League play.

The Lady Bulldogs play on Friday in the Dawg House at 5:30 p.m. against Westview High School.

Junior Varsity

Coach Kylee Harris’ junior varsity remained undefeated by beating Orange Glen 57-23. The junior varsity is now 6-0 overall and 3-0 in league play.

RaeAnn Vantol led the Lady Dawgs in scoring against Orange Glen with 16 points. Lindsey Spieker also scored in double digits with 11 points. Megan Buckley (2), Stephanie DeStefano (9), Ciara Swier (4), Morgan Gunderson (4), Courtney Robinson (8) and Kim Whelehon (3) also scored in the Valley League win.
