“The ladies played a great game and did an excellent job of working on the skills that need to be perfected. We were able to give everyone ample playing time and work on a variety of defenses and offenses,” said Lady Eagle head coach Darcy Siddon.
The Lady Eagles used their size advantage to build their lead to 28-10 by the half and picked up several points on close-in short jumpers and put-backs.
The Pettus outside shooting also contributed with Hailee Schauer, Marissa Carrizales and Chole Garza hitting from deep.
The game was cut a little short at the 2:39 mark as one of the McMullen girls took a tough fall and had to be assisted by paramedics.
Leading the way for the Lady Eagles was Jessica Stanley, who scored inside on drives and from under the net by being aggressive on the boards. Stanley recorded 14 points and hauled in three rebounds and had four blocks on the night. Mari Carrizales and Lindsay Parker each hit for eight points. Parker had a team-high eight rebounds while Carrizales took down five caroms and had five steals in the win. Schauer sank four points and worked for five rebounds.
Pettus’ Hannah Huskey had two points and three rebounds in the win. Simona Ramirez contributed with two tallies and one board. Shanon Mendez did not score but contributed with two rebounds, three steals and two assists for the Lady Eagles. Chloe Garza had two points to go along with four steals and the point guard set up two teammates for assists. Ashley Duran worked for five rebounds and had one steal. Savannah Del Bosque came through with one rebound, one steal and two assists.
The Lady Eagles traveled to Nordheim on Tuesday night to battle the Lady Pirates and will be back at home on Friday night to host the Skidmore-Tynan Lady Cats. The JV contest begins at 5 p.m. with the varsity contest to follow at about 6:30 p.m.
