Central

The Warriors fell to a tough Central team on Tuesday, Jan. 7, in Calmar as the 9-2 foe downed South Winn by a score of 50-19.

“This was the best first half of basketball I’ve seen from the girls all year,” said coach Kayla Ross. “The girls played solid defense the majority of the game and hustled nonstop.”

South Winn trailed the rival Warriors 6-5 after the opening quarter. Central went on to extend its lead to 17-7 at the half before getting hot in the third quarter to lead 40-11.

The Warriors were led by senior Liz Tieskoetter with nine points. Mary Frana and Janessa Zweibahmer led the team in rebounding with nine apiece. Tieskoetter and freshman Clare Courtney each had four steals in the tough loss.

“This is the most I’ve seen them play as a team with toughness yet this season,” closed Ross. “It makes me very proud!”
