PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Redskin girls overwhelm Jimmies

GOSHEN —  Tuneup night was a breeze Friday for the Goshen Lady Redskins.

With 11 players entering the scoring column, Goshen rolled to a 59-29 non-conference triumph over a depleted squad of Jimtown Jimmies.

The Redskins now have an 11-5 record overall and are back on the home floor tonight with a titanic Northern Lakes Conference clash against the NorthWood Lady Panthers.

“Our focus against Jimtown was how we play, rather than look at the scoreboard,” said GHS coach Lenny Krebs. “We were competing against ourselves, just trying to be the best we could be.”

Senior Aimee Swihart led the Redskins with 12 points and sophomore Kayci Troyer tallied 10. Junior Christina Gipson added six points and was the leading rebounder with seven.

Junior Deja Felder contributed eight points, sophomore Brooke Miller six on a pair of ‘3s’, freshman Olivia Love five, junior Jessica DeStefano and sophomore Yadira Cabrales both three, freshman Alyssa Hershberger, sophomores Brianna Yoder and Alexis Stevens two each.

“We had a nice start, then lost some of our intensity in the second quarter,” said Krebs. “We regained it in the third and that was good to see.

“Desiray Brown (sophomore) didn’t score, but I thought she did a lot of nice things off the bench. It was nice to see the scoring, but I’m more concerned with how many we give up.”

Goshen scored the first 14 points of the game, holding the Jimmies scoreless until a free throw by freshman Lindsey Stose with 10 seconds to go in the opening period.

It was 29-9 at halftime and 46-12 at the third stop before Jimtown enjoyed a 17-13 scoring edge in the last eight minutes.

“This is always a trap game for us with NorthWood coming in on Saturday,” said Krebs.

“We need to respect every opponent we face. NorthWood will be a challenge, but our girls are looking forward to it.”

Top Jimtown scorers were 5-5 sophomore Tori Henkler with nine points and 5-4 junior Logan Trosper eight. Logan is the granddaughter of 1967 GHS graduate Floyd Trosper who was a football and wrestling star for the Redskins.

Coach Gene Johnson’s Jimmies were minus 5-6 sophomore Heather Bozman and 5-8 junior Ally Vicsik, both sidelined with injuries.

Goshen’s junior varsity also improved to 11-5 with a 33-15 win. Brooke Miller hit five ‘3s’ for 15 points to lead the Redskins.

Brianna Yoder, Sonia Velazquez, Alexis Stevens and Sheyenne Rangel each netted four and Adrienne Henke two.

Poll

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
