Local grads lead Lady Lancers’ victory

WINONA LAKE – Grace’s women’s basketball team set two major records during the Crossroads League opener on Tuesday.

The Lady Lancers broke the single-game scoring record for the second time this season in a 118-82 rout of Goshen.

The previous scoring record for a game was set 10 days ago when Grace scored 117 points against Holy Family.

Grace improved to 8-1 (1-0 CL) with the win, setting the mark for the best start in program history.

The Lady Lancers shot an eye-popping 57 percent overall as a team, including 15-of-27 (56 percent) from beyond the arc. Grace also made 92 percent of its free throws (23-25).

It did not take Grace long to assume control of the contest. Goshen held a small 6-3 edge in the opening minutes, but the Lady Lancers erupted with 13 straight points and never looked back.

Vironnica Drake had seven points during Grace’s 13-0 run.

Goshen burned a pair of timeouts in the first quarter, but the tactic did little to slow Grace’s momentum. The Lady Lancers ended the quarter ahead 26-12.

John Glenn graduate Kyannah Stull was a driving force offensively to start the second quarter; the junior scored 10 points in just four minutes before picking up her second foul and heading to the bench.

Brooke Treadway picked up the scoring slack after Stull subbed out. The post scored eight points in short succession to keep Grace’s attack at a high pace.

The Lady Lancers went into halftime with a commanding 59-26 advantage. Grace shot 63 percent from the floor and hit 14-of-14 from the free-throw line.

The Maple Leafs (6-3, 0-1 CL), on the other hand, had 11 turnovers and shot 24 percent from the floor.

Stull had 24 points in just 18 minutes, shooting 7-of-11 from the floor, 6-of-9 from the 3-point line and 4-of-4 from the foul line. She added three assists and four rebounds.

Oregon-Davis product Lexi Minix had a busy night, nabbing six steals and handing out four assists while scoring six. Bremen grad Micaela Box added nine points and three assists.
