The Lady Wolverines held their home opener Monday night against the Lady Eagles of Newberry Academy, but were unable to get the victory. The girls came out cold on the offensive side of the floor and got into a big deficit after the first quarter and were unable to climb out of it. We came out in the third quarter and played really good basketball and were able to cut into the Lady Eagles’ lead, but it would not be enough as the we just ran out of energy in the 4th. The Lady Wolverines struggled from the free throw line, as well, going 7 of 21.
The leading scorer was Alexus Sanders who had 10 points. She was followed by Kaylynn Roche with 8, Michelle Ruff, Samantha Strubeck, and Raegan Kendrick all with 4, and Leanna Eison, Ashelyn King, and Harleigh McLaren also added 2.
