Farwell girls back to 500

Farwell evened its record at 2-2 on Thursday, Dec. 13, topping visiting Harrison 42-21 in Jack Pine Conference girls basketball.

“We played well, I was pleased,” Farwell head coach Tom Kleinhardt said. “Top to bottom we had a lot of contributors. We pressured the ball quite a bit and they had a hard time with it.”

The Lady Eagles scored 11 points in each of the first three quarters, leading 11-2 after the first, 22-8 at the half and 33-13 entering the fourth.

“We were very consistent offensively,” Kleinhardt said. “Defensively, we kept their higher scorers down. They’ve been getting a lot of numbers from their bigs but we kept those scorers down considerably.”

Farwell netted nine points to the Lady Hornets eight to round out the night’s scoring.

Jenna Hamming led Farwell with 12 points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals, Kate Saupe netted seven points and grabbed six boards, Jenna McKinley, Nina Buccilli, Bria Colosky, Salena Deleon and Caron White all scored four points. White also added seven rebounds. Sydney Hurley netted three points.

Harrison was led by Brooke Colville with seven points, Olivia Sharp scored four, Katelynn Sherrick and Brandi Powell both had three, Hillary Brewer netted two and Allison Lipovsky and Erica Heckman both had one.

The Lady Eagles game at Beal City on Dec. 18 was postpone and will be made up Feb. 11.
