Forcing some early turnovers, the Lennox High School girls’ basketball team jumped out to an early 20-3 after the opening quarter of SoDak 16 play in Madison against Miller.
Lennox never looked back, outscoring Miller 15-5 in the second and 12-6 in the third to get the eventual 55-20 victory, punching their ticket to the State A Tournament for the second straight year.
“I thought our seniors set the tone last night. It has been a goal for us to get back to the State Tournament and I don’t think our seniors would have cared if we were playing the Lakers last night, they were going to make sure the team got the opportunity to travel out to Rapid,” said LHS head coach Adam Quail. “The energy in the gym was contagious. Our fans brought it, the students brought it, the cheerleaders were awesome, our bench was fantastic, and all of that fed into our girls playing as hard as they did. So proud of them for making a statement in front of a full gym and showing basketball fans who have never seen us play what Lennox basketball is about.”
Leading the Orioles in their win were Madysen Vlastuin and Rianna Fillipi, each of whom were in double figures.
