The Lyle/Pacelli girls basketball team won its fourth straight game when it beat Lanesboro (2-5 overall, 2-3 SEC) 77-54 in Lyle Friday.

The Athletics (4-2 overall, 4-1 SEC) saw their top two scorers Ann Rysavy and Nyabang Diang sit out most of the first half but Dani Felten picked up the slack as she finished with a career-high 17 points while draining four three-pointers.

“She just couldn’t miss and she helped keep us in it,” L/P head coach Brad Walter said. “We had a lot of good play by a lot of different players. When you start winning the whole attitude changes and players start to let the game come to them.”

L/P scoring: Nyabang Diang, 22; Dani Felten, 17; Madison Truckenmiller, 13; Maggie Lewison, 6; Lauren Rieker, 2; Courtney Walter, 2; free throws: 65 percent (15-for-23)
