The Bulldog girls connected on 15 of 32 shots from the field (46.8%), 10 of 19 from the line (52.6%), and Tiffany Johnson made the team's only three-point attempt. Kristine Munden scored 20 points to lead Bulldog scoring, and Emily Sonksen added nine. Johnson and Leah Kai scored five points each. Kai also had four steals on defense, and Sonksen dished out seven assists from her point guard position.
Munden was disappointed in some of the team's ball-handling. "We need to take better care of the ball and eliminate some of our turnovers," said the veteran coach, alluding to the team's 23 turnovers in the game.
In the boys' contest, Newell-Fonda also prevailed, 56-53.
Senior Jacob Bruce scored 18 points to lead Bulldog scoring. Fellow seniors Gabe Fuller and Tanner Winterhof scored 16 and nine points, respectively, and junior guard Jared Bruce had eight points.
