Lyle/Pacelli girls play best game yet

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, January 21, 2003

Even though the Lyle/Pacelli girls' basketball team lost 82-59 to Spring Grove on Friday night, it managed to bring its offensive and defensive efforts together in one game -- something not yet seen this season.

This was only the second time this season that the Southeast Conference's leading team -- Spring Grove -- allowed 59 points or more against them.

"This was our best game yet," said L/P coach Craig Smith. "The girls were putting it all together on the court tonight, they did a great job,"

Three Lyle/Pacelli players scored in double digits during the contest. Laura Christopherson led the team with 15 points, Kate Boisjolie netted 12, while Anna Hebrink had 10. Boisjolie went 2-4 from the line and Hebrink sank two three-pointers during her time on the court. Christopherson and Boisjolie each had one basket from beyond the three-point boundary.

Lindsay Halbach and Kristina Hollerud contributed eight points each. Hebrink went 4-6 from the free-throw line. Louise Mudra donated six points including one three-pointer.

Rebecca Mino, Karina Golberg, Carmen Buntje, Chelsey Roberts, and Sammi Jones all worked hard

to support the rest of the team with their on-court performances despite not scoring.

"The girls played a very balance game against a very competitive conference team. This was their best effort so far," Coach Smith concluded.

L/P will take its 3-11 overall and 3-5 conference records on the road Tuesday night when they travel to Southland in a non-conference game in Adams. Lyle/Pacelli will then host conference rival Glenville-Emmons on Thursday. Both contests begin at 7:30 p.m.
