Ridge View girls stay on win streak

Friday, February 11, 2011

The improved Ridge View girls kept up their impressive late season performance with a pair of recent wins, defeating Woodbine 84-35, and Newell-Fonda 59-50.

Egypt Clayton led four Raptors in double-figure scoring with a game-high 25 points, while Brooke Wiese tallied 14, Emily Schiernbeck 12, and Nicole Snyder 10.

Ridge View sank a sizzling 30-61 field goals for 49 percent, including a tidy 5-9 three-balls, and cashed in 19-26 free throws in the game.

Clayton also led the winners with nine rebounds, followed by Roxanne Grundmeier with six. Schiernbeck led in assists with five, while Clayton totaled four, along with three steals. Grundmeier also registered five assists.

"This was a fun game for the team." said Ridge View coach Ken Slater. "All but one girl was able to score and we had four in double figures. We executed our offense well and made our shots."

Clayton also erupted for 25 points in the win over Newell-Fonda, while Snyder added 11 points, and Grundmeier eight.

The Raptors meshed 24-57 field goals for 42 percent, including 4-7 three-balls, and a 7-14 night at the free throw line.

Grundmeier grabbed nine rebounds to lead her team in that category, and Clayton had eight, and Wiese five. Grundmeier also had three steals for the winners.

"This was a great win for the seniors on Senior Night," said coach Slater. "Offensively, we played well and for the most part did a good job of getting the ball inside, and we were finishing. Our defense really stepped up when it had to in the third quarter and held them to only four points while we went on a 19-4 scoring advantage in the quarter.

"I'm definitely proud of our team going 10-2 in the last 12 games, after our 1-5 start to the year."
