Fast start sparks Cougars


Follow The Republic:


In Friday night’s home game against Lanesville, the Trinity Lutheran girls basketball team was without two senior starters.

The Cougars, however, still managed to begin the game on an 11-0 run.

They used a 10-2 run in the third quarter to increase their lead back to double figures, and they never looked back as they won their seventh straight game, 52-39.

“We were missing some kids tonight, but we had others that stepped up and did a great job,” Cougars coach Mike Lang said. “I thought Mariah (Nolan) and      Haley (Couch) showed some senior leadership out there, and Sydney (Stuckwisch) did a good job of manning the middle. We had freshmen come in and play huge minutes for us, and I am very proud of them.”

Stuckwisch, Liz Hall, Nolan ad Couch combined to score the Cougars’ first 11 points by the 4:02 mark of the first quarter. The Eagles then woke up and scored the final seven points of the quarter.

Nolan scored 11 of her game-high 18 points in the third quarter.

Couch added 10 points for the Cougars (9-3), and Stuckwisch scored 10. Trinity won the battle of the boards 39-27, and Nolan collected 10 for a double-double.

Parsons led the Eagles (2-8) with 14 points.
