Monday, January 28, 2013

STORM LAKE - The St. Mary's girl's basketball team snapped an eight-game losing streak Tuesday night as they outscored Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn 31-13 in the second half to post a 56-37 victory.

Jasmine Demers posted a triple-double as she knocked down 7-of-17 from the floor and 10-of-12 at the line for 24 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists, six steals and four blocks.

Trisha Lenhart hit 4-of-4 from the floor on her way to 11 points and 10 rebounds. Mackenzie Laven had six points and six boards, Riley Lenhart had six points and four rebounds, Annie Flynn had four points and six rebounds, Rachel Todd three points and six rebounds, and Emily Ivey two points and six rebounds.

The Panthers trailed 11-9 after one but would grab a 25-24 lead by half. An 11-3 third quarter, and a 20-10 fourth, locked up their fourth win of the season. St. Mary's hit 20-of-46 from the floor and 15-of-18 at the line.

""The girls came ready to play tonight and I'm so proud of them," said St. Mary's head coach Jim Demers. "Jasmine and Trisha both had a great around game with Jasmine having a triple-double and Trisha having a double-double. We needed this game to give our girls some confidence so we can finish the season strong."

The Panthers (4-12) host their homecoming game Friday night against Pocahontas Area (6-10).
