RESULTS FROM YESTERDAY

GIRLS BASKETBALL - VARSITY

Alexandria 65 Big Lake 46

It was cold outside but the Lady Cards hit the court heating things up to take on the Big Lake Hornets on the road. The Cardinal defense and offense were in sync as we executed on both ends of the floor to pull away for a solid non conference win. The defense locked down the Hornet leading scorers and we executed efficiently as we set each other up on the offensive end as well. Scoring for the Cards was paced by Ella Grove with 25, then the balance took over with Mia McGrane I’m double figures with 10, Jaya Hatlestad 9, Mataya Hoelscher and Lilly Horn each with 7, Summer Gerhardt 3, and 2 each for Myah Kremer and Alayna Strand. The boards were led by Jaya Hatlestad and Mia McGrane with 7 each and Summer Gerhardt ripped down 6. Assists were led by Mia McGrane with 6, while Myah Kremer dishes out 4. Strand and Hatlestad each 3. Steals were led by Grove with 4 and Hatlestad 3. It was a great TEAM win. Next action is Thursday at Little Falls and Friday for a double header with Detroit Lakes. #wingsup #comeflywithus #togetherwearestronger
