Lady Eagles roll over Kimball Area Lady Cubs in basketball



W-06Senior center Courtney Dilley led the EV-W lady Eagles at home Friday night, when she tossed in 18 points to help seal a commanding victory over the Kimball Area Cubs, 57-38. The Kimball club with a record of 4-3 is by no means a pushover opponent, but the team effort and evenly-distributed scoring from the EV-W girls was too much on that night. Holly Schumacher, senior guard, contributed 9 points; sophomore forward Greta Stommes tallied 12, including 6 from the charity stripe; Brook Stang, sophomore guard, ended with 8, while junior forward Dani Nelson added 6 of her own.

Coach Tom Jensen is pleased with the respectable 3-2 overall record – and 2-0 in the conference. “My hope for the team is that they get better each practice and become the best players they can become, and let our win/loss record take care of itself.” Jensen continued, “I also hope that these young women can learn and grow throughout the season, and develop essential life skills that will help them in the future!”

Next up for the gals is a trip to Pierz Thursday, Dec. 20, then the Annandale Invitational Friday and Saturday, Dec. 28 and 29.
