Girls Basketball

On Saturday, the Lions traveled to Visitation for an early morning game against a 3A school. While the first half got off to a slow start for the Lions where they saw 3 girls get into early foul trouble, the Lions held the line and were able to take a 9 point lead into halftime. 

The second half the Lions really got rolling and were able to find a groove on offense pouring in 42 points in the second half. The Lions came away with a 71-39 victory. The Lions were led in scoring by senior Hailey Hohenecker who put in a season-high 28 points. Senior Madie Anderson and freshman Kyra Miller were also able to put in 11 points of their own and freshman Grace Counts chipped in10. 

On Tuesday, the Lions took on the task of playing the tough 4A Lake Conference school Edina. The first half was plagued by cold shooting from both teams but Edina was able to capitalize on some early turnovers and helped push their lead to a comfortable position of 24 points. 

After halftime, the Lions responded and were able to find the bottom of the net a little easier. In the end, the Lions fell to the Hornets by a score of 59-34. The Lions were led in scoring by senior Hailey Hohenecker and freshman Grace Counts with 11 points. Freshman Kyra Miller also put in 10 points of her own. 

The Lions will play their last regular season game of the year at Royalton on Thursday, February 20. Section 5AA play will start on February, 28. Time, site and opponent to be determined.

Attached is a profile form that Mound Westonka Athletics asks you to fill out and return to Lynne Peterson (). It takes 1-2 school days to create a guest ID number for your daughter, which will enable you to register. Mound Westonka Athletics also asks that you provide a copy of your daughter’s current sports physical; please scan () or fax (952-491-8127) that to the Mound Westonka Athletics office as well.
