Lady Indians’ Season Comes to a Close


Aly Cameron looks for someone to pass to. Aly Cameron looks for someone to pass to. The St. Ignace Saints closed out Newberry’s season with a 72—25 win over the Lady Indians at last Wednesday’s February 28, District 93 game.

The end result was no surprise to anyone in the Eastern Upper Peninsula. The topranked St. Ignace team compiled a record of 19 wins and one loss, the latter a defeat to a Detroit team. The Indians had a record of 7 - 13.

The Saints won the previous two battles with Newberry by the score of 52—11 on January 12 and 68—15 February 15.

Be that as it may, the Lady Indians gave it all they had from the opening tip-off to the ending buzzer.

The Indians stayed with the Saints for the first two minutes of the game—then the Saint press took over, causing too many Newberry turnovers leading to easy St. Ignace baskets. St. Ignace finished the first quarter leading 20—6.

The Saint blitzkrieg continued for the rest of the game, as it has to all the teams in the Upper Peninsula.

Katie Rahilly led Newberry in scoring 14 points. Alexis Groenhout offered seven and Madison Grigg scored two.

Every Saint on the team got in the game, with only two not scoring. Emily Coveyou led the team with 21 points. Linnie Gustafson had 17, Madison Olsen eight, Emmalee Hart seven, Keshhia Davis five, Tessa Shepard and Anna Hart four each and Hallie Marshal, Jessie Frazier and Tasheka Battick two apiece.

The Indians should be stronger next year with eight juniors and one freshman hopefully returning. The Indians will lose two seniors, Alexis Groenhout and Felicia Raymond, to graduation. We at the News wish them the best.
