LCA continues perfect record

Posted

Coming off a five-win campaign a year ago, the Wright City girls basketball team knew there was room for improvement.

Under first-year coach Abby Modaff, the Wildcats are already showing progress on the hardwood. They are just two victories away from matching last season’s win total and sported a 3-4 record heading into the holiday break.

Wright City is coming off a 36-24 win over Hazelwood East at the Orchard Farm Tournament on Dec. 17.

Junior Katie Schanuel led the way with 13 points, while sophomore Kaedyn Johnson added 12.

The Wildcats jumped ahead with a 15-2 opening quarter and stayed in command from there.

They had opened the tournament with a 73-5 loss to Orchard Farm and a 41-9 setback to De Soto.

Wright City’s other victories this year have come against Maplewood (39-11) and North Point (31-18). The Wildcats are back in action the first week of January at the Clopton Tournament.

Liberty Christian stays perfect

The Liberty Christian girls basketball team ended the first half of the season with a perfect record intact.

The Eagles (12-0) pulled away from host Wellsville-Middletown in the second quarter and never looked back in a 57-37 triumph on Dec. 21.

Senior Andrea Mueller scored a team-high 17 points. Sophomore Sophi Mueller followed with 16 points and junior Alli Meyer added 11. Meyer also had 10 assists and six steals. Senior Adison Roden chipped in with six points.

Senior Gracie Foran led the team in rebounds with seven, with Roden following with six.

Liberty Christian led 30-22 at halftime and extended its lead to 11 entering the final period.

The Eagles are back in action Thursday at Elsberry. Game time is 5:30 p.m.
