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.

NorthWood (8-3) took control in the game with Highland in the opening moments as Black Swish senior Morgan Olson scored baskets on the team’s first three possessions each time after grabbing an offensive rebound.

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

“We took them out of their game early on,” veteran NorthWood coach Steve Neff said. “I personally scouted Highland. They had beaten some good teams. We had the worst record of the team’s in our pool.”

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.”

Frantz also dished out six assists.

“She made some nice passes,” Neff said.

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

Junior Shyla Southern chipped in with seven points for NorthWood, senior Taylor Fielstra and freshman Taitlyn Trenshaw both five, junior Haley Roe and sophomore Arika Flickinger four apiece, senior Inger Yoder two and sophomore Andrea Tuttle one.

Olson had eight rebounds, Southern and Roe both five. Alexander had three assists, Frantz six steals and

The Black Swish also had a good start in the East Noble contest, taking a 20-4 lead after one quarter. East Noble played better in the second and cut the lead to 37-26 at halftime before NorthWood got the score to 53-33 at the end of the third quarter.

Olson finished with 19 points, Frantz 15, Fielstra and Rob both seven, Alexander six, Southern four, Yoder two and Flickinger one.

Alexander had six rebounds and Olson five. Fielstra had four assists, Alexander three, Frantz and Roe two steals apiece.
