After dropping the last three junior varsity contests against B-B-E, EV-W and Upsala, Kimball was able to slide past the Melrose Dutchmen by four points at the Upsala Tourney Saturday, Dec. 28. We were led in scoring by Madison Hurrle who scored 15 points, Abbey Straley had 6, and Alexa Ruehle drained 4. Emily Utecht finished with 3, Ariel Laabs and Kaitlin Truenow both scored 2, with Denzel Atherton and Katelynn Loehrer each making a free throw. The Lady Cubs won 34-30 and now are 3-5 overall, 0-2 in CMC play. Up next for Kimball will be to travel to St. John’s Prep Friday, Jan. 3, 2014.
