GIRLS PREP HOOPS: NorthWood, Raiders roll in tourney play


Senior Morgan Miller scored a career-high 23 points for the Raiders. Taylor Miller added 12, sophomore Ellie Lengacher 10 (ties her career-high), sophomore Baleigh Carithers seven, Kelly Miller and Zook four apiece and senior Molly Bontrager two.

The Black Swish led 22-6 at the end of the opening quarter and 39-11 at halftime.

NorthWood had good scoring balance with three players in double figures. Senior Tiffanie Alexander and junior Jordyn Frantz both tossed in 13 points and Olson added 12.

“This was a good game for us,” Neff said. “We got contributions from everyone that played and we got a chance to rest our inside players. We needed that with two more games on Saturday.”

“She made some nice passes,” Neff said.

The Black Swish stretched the lead to 53-23 by the end of the third period.
