SENTINEL TRIBUNE EDUC/00TION Wednesday, January 19, 2011 Page 6 I By Sheryl Woelber Coach The Lady Chargers bas- ketball team started the new year off right with a big conference win over the Edgerton Flying Dutchmen on Tuesday, January 4. WWG headed to Edgerton and continued their great defense from the holiday tournament." The Chargers press flustered the Dutchmen and WWG was able to score many buckets off the transition and gain a nice lead at halftime, 37-23. The second half contin- ued much like the first and WWG ended with the vic- tory, 68-47. Chanel Madson fnished with 25 points, 4 rebounds and 6 steals, and Paige Erickson added 10 points, 5 assists, and 6 steals. Molly Jarmer chipped in 9 points and stole the ball 4 times while Anne Woelber finished with 8 points and 2 assists. A very, very tall SSC Quasar entered the WWG High School gym on Thursday, January 6 and tried to intimidate the Lady Chargers, but failed to do so. Excellent team defense was played by all of the Chargers and the team adjusted well to shut down Lady Chargers win 2, drop I SCHOOL t00eOu=&apos;so0000nso w00atoog00ba00le00or00o MENU was one of the games the Chargers needed to rebound well and they did that with coming down with a team total of 35 boards. The half- time score was WWG 28, SSC 18 and the Chargers held the Quasars to 18 sec- ond half points. The final score was WWG 54, SSC 36. The Chargers finished with nice balanced scoring for the evening. Woelber lead the team in scoring with 13 points and 7 rebounds while Erickson had an out- standing night finishing with 12 points, 13 rebounds, and 4 steals. Madson added 12 points as well along with grabbing 5 rebounds and 3 steals. Maddie Frank chipped in 8 points and had 3 steals. Jarmer added 5 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals. Mother Nature then stepped in and the January 11 home game with Hills Beaver Creek had to be rescheduled to Friday, February 4. This made a long stretch of not play- ing for the Lady Chargers. The Chargers traveled to Edgerton to take on Southwest Christian on Friday, January 14. This Chargers and they left with their 4th loss of the season. The Chargers started off with excellent defense and many steals, but were unable to convert on the fast breaks. This hurt the Chargers and they went to the lockerroom at halftime down by 8 points, 25-33. Adjustments were made, but the SWC hot shooting, quickness and height inside made it too difficult for the Chargers to defend. The Chargers were down by 15 at one point and were able to cut the lead SWC lead to 7, but would never get clos- er. The final score ended, 72-59. The team failed to do their job on the rebound- ing end and only ended with a team total of 14 with Jarmer grabbing 4 of them. Woelber ended with 15 points. Erickson finished with 14 points and 3 steals and Madson had 14 points and 4 steals. The Chargers are 6-4 overall and 4-3 in the Red Rock Conference. The next game will be at home with RRC on Thursday, January 20, and then the team travels to take on a tough Fulda Raiders team.
