HS girls' basketball wins two games against YIS

The high school girls' basketball teams hosted YIS on Saturday afternoon. Varsity won 52-25 and JV won 23-19.

Coach Craig Eby said the varsity came ready to play against a YIS team that has played many close games against other Kanto Plains teams this season. Eby commented that the team's balance shined through in the contest.

"Rachel carried the weight for us on Thursday against Kinnick, but today, foul trouble kept her from having a good game. But today, people got it to Anna and she showed how well she can score. Mari also had a really good game. She played under control and showed that she's ready to play."

The Knights had strong performances from Anna (20 points, seven rebounds, four steals), Mari (11 points, 19 rebounds, four blocks, three assists), Rachel (nine points), Mitsuki (six points, seven assists, five steals) and Jessica (eight rebounds, four steals).

JV coach Jared Johnson said this about the JV game:

"We kind of went through the motions in the first half, especially the first quarter. We didn't play with much energy or passion, and we just looked exhausted. We changed up our defensive strategy to cover their star player a little bit more aggressively, and the energy we drew from that also seemed to transfer to the offensive end."

For the JV team, Marikah contributed nine points, seven rebounds and four blocks to lead the team in all three categories. Other key statistical performances came from Sora (six points, four steals), Charis (four points), Kiera (six rebounds) and Devika (six steals).

In Kanto Plains play, varsity remains undefeated with a 5-0 record. JV is now 3-2 on the season. Both teams will play next Tuesday versus Yokota at home.
