Van-Far head girls basketball coach Kelly Orf was proud of her team’s hustle and improvement in two games at last week’s Bowling Green Tournament.
Unfortunately, the Lady Indians lost both games and left town without a trophy.
In the first round, the Lady Indians’ zone was unable to stop the Lady Bobcats’ offense in a 55-24 loss.
“This was not one of our better games and the girls and I know we have to work on rebounding and looking to score more,” Orf said.
Abilene Gatson led Van-Far with six points and three rebounds while Jayda Borgmeyer added six points and two rebounds.
Haven Atkinson had four points and three rebounds; Breanna Strange scored four points and two rebounds; Brooke Johnson tallied two points and two rebounds; Renee Nelson scored one point with four rebounds; and Ciara Craven had one point and one steal.
In the consolation semifinals, the Lady Indians fell to Silex, 40-25.
“The girls worked really hard against Silex,” Orf said. “We caused them to turn the ball over and we did a great job rebounding the ball and putting up a lot of second chance shots, which is something we have been really working on. We struggled getting back on defense and Silex beat us down the floor too much.”
Borgmeyer led Van-Far with seven points and six rebounds while Strange scored four points, five rebounds, and three steals.
Johnson had four points and four rebounds; Annaliese Hubert scored four points, three rebounds, and one steal; Atkinson scored two points, three rebounds, and four steals; Gatson tallied two points, three rebounds, and three steals; Nelson had two points and one rebound; Craven had two rebounds and three steals; while Kayelee Harrower had one rebound.
