River Valley girls post 2-2 record

Thursday, December 17, 2009

The River Valley girls have experienced an up-and-down basketball season so far this year while ringing up a 2-2 record.

The Wolverines opened the season with a 40-28 win at Kingsley-Pierson, with Brittny Shropshire and Lexie Chester each scoring 10 points to lead the team to victory. Kari Ludvigson tallied six points and grabbed seven rebounds, and Sarah Byers scored seven points and had six rebounds.

At Hinton, the Wolverines never got untracked and the rated Blackhawks decimated RV 91-10 after taking an incredible 45-0 halftime lead. Kasi McDermott led RV with six points.

The Wolverines beat West Monoa 49-44 in Correctionville after staking out an early 10-point lead. Shropshire led the way with 11 points, Ludvigson added 10, and Byers and Fitch had nine apiece. Fitch also grabbed nine rebounds, Byers snagged seven, and Ludvigson six.

River Valley dropped a hard-fought 48-39 game at Maple Valley/Anthon-Oto, with McDermott leading the RV scoring with eight points, and Mackenzie Fitch and Shropshire each scoring seven.

"We are becoming a much better team defensively game by game," said RV coach Matt Jenness. "Our full-court pressure is getting better and we are able to turn our defense into offense.

"We are still working on playing a full game. If we can keep that intensity up and limit our turnovers, we will be right on track."
