Lady Jays hit season-high in scoring against RSM
REMSEN — The Lady Jays found their offense clicking the best it has in a long time as the team beat rival Remsen St. Mary’s 72-48 on Tuesday, January 30. For Gehlen, it is the most points scored by the team since reaching 75 in a win against Remsen-Union almost exactly four years prior on Jan. 31, 2014.
Gehlen got started right away against the Hawks this time, busting right out of the gate for 46 first half points. In the first meeting of the season, the Jays managed just two points in the first quarter. The 46 first half points are more than team scored in full games seven times this season, including the first meeting with the Hawks where they scored 45 points across the entire 32 minutes.
Sydney Livermore led the way with a career-high 21 points as she made 10-of-12 shots from the floor. She also led the team with six rebounds and three steals.
Katelyn Langel added 16 points for the Jays while Addison Weber finished with 15. Weber hit a pair of 3-pointers and had a team-best four assists.
Abbie Dickman ended with eight points.
“The girls on the Gehlen team shot remarkably well in the first half and really missed very few shots,” RSM Head Coach Scott Willman said. “We dribble-drive attacked better and backdoored better than any time this season, creating 32 free throw attempts and making 17. We did well handling pressure and kept turnovers down.”
The pace of the game also helped the Hawks score points as their 48 for the game ties for second-most scored in a game this season, matching the amount scored in their win against River Valley, but five shy of the points scored in an early season loss to South O’Brien.
Sydney Schorg led the Lady Hawks with 13 points and seven rebounds.
Emma Galles scored nine points and had five rebounds.
Willman praised Galles as she moved into the starting lineup for the game.
“Emma Galles has really stepped up, utilizing her athleticism,” Willman said.
Sydney Schroeder ended with eight points for the team.
Brittany Johnson had six points and boards while Lexi Harpenau had five points and assists.
