ALTA - The Alta-Aurelia girls faced a couple of pretty tough Twin Lakes Conference opponents in Twin Lakes Conference games here on Friday and Saturday.
In Friday's contest, Newell-Fonda set a school mark by hitting 16 of their 32 attempts from behind the three-point line, en route to an 85-41 win over the Warriors, who were never able to stop the Mustangs' runs or create a run of their own.
Alexis Hernandez led the Warriors scoring with 14 points, while Rachel Husman scored eight and Valarie Hernandez added seven. Rachel Husman and Lindsay Hall led the team in rebounds with six boards apiece.
On Saturday, the Warriors hosted East Sac County in a make-up game, and East Sac, which has been on a hot streak recently, knocking off Manson NW Webster, Sioux Central and SE Webster, extended their streak as they topped the Warriors by a 58-27 score. The game was within reach in the first quarter, but as time went on, East Sac being the solid team they are, opened up the lead.
Alta-Aurelia struggled from the field all night shooting a poor 18%. for the game. Rachel Husman scored nine points to lead A-A and Gracie Winterhof added six. Husman also led the team in rebounding with nine caroms and Cristena Heschke grabbed seven.
Alta-Aurelia coach G.G. Harris said his team never got into the flow of the game and are still facing offensive challenges. They took on Storm Lake St. Mary's on Tuesday to finish up the regular season, and then will face this same East Sac County team to open tournament play.
