The Lady Tigers showed no ill effects from Tuesday’s tough loss as they raced out to a 33-11 first half lead over Calvary Bible College and never looked back. The Tigers displayed balanced scoring and solid defense as they got their fourth win of the season by the final score of 61-40.
Abby Schultz (Calvary Schools of Holland) paced the balanced attack with 12 points, Amy Leszinske (Ravenna) had nine, Anna Iwaniw (Kent City), Sydney Wildeboer (Kent City), and Marissa Pelletier (Calvin Christian) each had eight, Brittany Summerfield (Forest Hills Northern) and Kerie Rudd (Battle Creek Pennfield) had six, and Sarah Steenwyk (Zion Christian) chipped in with four.
Kerie Rudd led the rebounders with 10, with Anna Iwaniw and Marissa Pelletier each grabbing eight boards. The Tigers displayed tremendous unselfish play as they racked up 21 assists on their 28 made baskets. Amy Leszinske and Kerie Rudd each had six to lead the team.
“We got off to a great start and we really needed that after the tough loss the other night,” Coach Renzema said after the game. “We played solid defense and really limited them offensively. I am proud of the effort the girls gave, especially since some of them are not feeling well.”
The Lady Tigers will conclude their Iowa trip as they take on the Lady Bears of Barclay College from Kansas at 11 AM EST on Saturday.
