Girls earn wins over MVP, Rock Valley

On Tuesday, Jan. 2 the Lennox High School girls’ basketball used a strong second quarter to defeat Mount Vernon Plankinton 65-58 at home. 

“I thought we executed our defensive game plan extremely well. MVP has two of the top offensive talents in the state and we wanted to limit clean looks at the rim and make the game extremely hard for them,” said LHS head coach Adam Quail. 

Quail was impressed with the defensive effort of Gavyn Herlyn, Karli Bosma, Ashlee Sweeter, Dani Highum and Ryan Hanssen who helped force MVP’s top offensive options to collectively shoot 8-26 from the floor. 

“I was also pleased with our 18 assists with Dani Highum leading the way with 7,” said Quail.

Carli Kuyper and Andie Peters also had great all-around games with Kuyper finishing with 18 points and 12 rebounds and Peters finishing with 18 points and 5 assists while shooting four of seven from behind the arc.

The Orioles shot over 52 percent in the game while MVP shot just over 36 percent. 

Teagan Sturm finished with eight points in the game. She also had four assists and one steal. Bosma also had eight points, Hanssen finished with six, HIghum five, and Sweeter three. 

On Thursday, Jan. 4 the LHS girls were on the road facing Rock Valley, IA. Lennox jumped out to an early 18-6 lead and never looked back going on to get the 63-31 victory. 

“Our game versus Rock Valley was our most complete game of the season so far. We shot 12/23 from three and 50% overall while limiting Rock Valley to 29.7% shooting and 8.3% from three,” said Quail. “We finished with 21 assists and also won the rebounding battle.”

Kuyper led the Orioles with her second consecutive double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds followed by Highum with 13 points and Hanssen chipping in 10 points. Herlyn had a great game distributing the ball and ended with five assists. 

Scoring five points in the game were Libby Kranz and Peters. Sturm finished with four points. Herlyn and Bosma each finished with three and Mia Hanisch had two.
