Alta girls improve to .500 in NWC

Thursday, December 20, 2007

Alta hung an inconsiderate 30-spot on the board in the second quarter after a slow first frame in beating the Storm Lake St. Mary's girls basketball team 76-38 here Tuesday to improve to 3-3 in the Northwest Conference.

Jordan Henningsen and Haley Payne scored 24 and 10 points, respectively, for the Cyclones, who led just 11-10 after the first quarter but went into the lockers up 41-20.

"I thought we played hard tonight. We had the intensity that we need to win ball games," Alta coach Jeannie Henningsen said. "We had a lot of girls step up in different areas on both the offensive and defensive sides of the court.

"We need to keep working and improving in the little areas."

Jordan Henningsen had seven steals and five assists in addition to her 24 points. Jessy Bibler and Ashley Syndergaard cleared seven and five boards, respectively.

Bibler added seven assists and four steals, with Kaylee Strock chipping in three assists.

Rylee Paterson paced St. Mary's with 17 points and six rebounds.

Panthers Cayla Egesdal (6 points), Emily Mohr (5), Melanie Snyder (4), Jen Dimig (4) and Anyssa Lenhart (2) rounded out the scoring.

Paterson stockpiled a team-best six rebounds. Lenhart added five and Egesdal three.

Alta (4-5, 3-3 Northwest Conference) plays host to L-M tomorrow night.

St. Mary's (0-9, 0-6) entertains Schaller-Crestland.
