This past Tuesday the SHS girls basketball team beat Avon High School, 52-36. Junior Emma DeHart lead the Lady Cards in scoring with 25 points. Assistant varsity coach Greg Burton says the game didn’t go too bad. He says they had a rocky start at first and weren’t hitting many shots, but the team came back better in the second half.

“We started to get it clicking probably the second half,” Burton said. “We hit a lot of shots, playing defense better and mainly the ball went in.”

Burton says varsity’s defense kept Avon from scoring a lot. They were able to hold one of Aon’s top scorers to only one point.  

Senior Brooke Lightfoot says the game was difficult because Avon does not play like a 0-6 team.

“They were one of those teams where it was like a ‘get you’ game where they could come back and they could win at any moment,” Lightfoot said.

Lightfoot says in previous games the Lady Cards had bad starts to halftime, but she thought they played well coming out in the second half of this game. During the fourth quarter, Lightfoot sat the bench part of the time. Even though she doesn’t like sitting the bench, she says it was exciting to watch the game happening.
