"Baily Wiltgen was extremely aggressive," Gehlen coach Marty Kurth said said. "She kept us going offensively early."
The junior put in 12 points for the evening against the Westerners.
They upped the tempo in the third stanza to make it a nine-point lead for Gehlen, 28-19.
Gehlen had a nice lead in the fourth quarter but the Westerners battled hard and cut it to six points with a little left to go in the game.
The Jays hit two free throws and held the ball to finish it out for the win.
Kurth said the Jays struggled with connecting with the basket Tuesday.
The girls went 11-for-41 from the field and 13-for-22 from the free throw line.
"We shot extremely poor," Kurth said. "We couldn't get into an offensive rhythm at all tonight."
The Gehlen coach tipped his hat to the A-W team.
"I've got to give them a lot of credit. They came in with a different type of defense and we struggled with it," Kurth said. "I guess a win is a win."
Gehlen did have three girls in double digits scoring.
Wiltgen had 12 and Hannah Sitzmann and Emily Holtgrewe each added 10 for the night, including some from beyond the arc to improve Gehlen's lead.
Sitzmann added nine rebound for the Jays, while Katelin Langel pulled down eight boards and made six steals.
The Jays improve their record to 2-0 and will be on the road Friday to meet up with Spalding Catholic in Granville.
