Community R-VI’s Natalie Thomas gets ready to go up for a shot against Van-Far.

The Community R-VI Lady Trojans continued to put their depth on display last week when they hosted Van-Far on Thursday night. Eight different players scored points in their 72-28 victory over the Lady Indians.
“Our depth is one of the keys for us this season as we can put fresh bodies out there every four minutes and keep the energy up in transition,” said Community R-VI head coach Bob Curtis. “We shared the ball really well tonight as I thought we made the extra pass multiple times to get just a little better look. Our practices are super competitive with so many talented girls; it makes for an environment that you can really simulate a game like atmosphere each and every night in practice.”
The Lady Trojans jumped out to a 31-7 first quarter lead as Natalie Thomas and Dalaney Bowers combined to score 23 of those points.
They led 46-12 at halftime before cruising to the 44-point win.
Bowers led the team with 24 points and four steals; Thomas added 23 points and four steals; Emmi Johnson scored six points; Alexis Welch added six points and three rebounds; Sadie Hoyt had five points and five rebounds; Brianna Beamer scored four points; while both Morgan Bryant and Emma Hombs scored two points.
The Lady Trojans are now 4-0 on the season.
Meanwhile, Jayle Jennings scored 14 points and Panna Connaway added seven points for Van-Far in the loss.
“Our game against Community was a rough one,” said Van-Far head coach Kelly Borchert. “Community has a great team this year and we couldn’t get much going for us. Jennings had 14 points and Connaway seven, but we struggled handling the ball and getting our shots to fall. All we can do is learn from it, make adjustments, and improve the rest of the season.”
