MACA girls take charge vs. Montevideo

MACA asserted itself early and kept on with this tone in the Friday home success. The opponent was Montevideo for this February 15 GBB action.
The Tigers assumed a 27-17 lead in the first half. They wrapped things up with a 24-11 scoring advantage in the second half. So the final score was 51-28.
It was win No. 15 for the MACA crew against seven losses.
The team is adjusting to the unfortunate loss of Tracy Meichsner who experienced a practice injury. She's no-go for the rest of the season. It's an ACL (knee) problem.
Katie Holzheimer is ascending in Morris Area Chokio Alberta career annals. She's having special impact with her long-range shooting. On Friday she was in the kind of groove that is typical for her, making three 3-pointers. Courtney Gades made a '3' also.
Holzheimer's successes from beyond that stripe tied her with Allison Donovan for career-best. Donovan set the standard in 2000. Coming out of Friday, Holzheimer and Donovan both owned the career stat of 109 in 3's.
Holzheimer is a senior guard and on Friday her 13 points were team-best, edging Beth Holland who had 12. MaKenzie Smith was the other double figures scorer with ten. Abby Olson contributed eight points to the winning cause, while Gades and Kaitlin Vogel each put in four.
The Tigers were four of 16 in three-point shooting, 22 of 52 in total field goals and three of six in freethrows.
Smith led in rebounds with eight followed by Nicole Strobel with seven and Holzheimer with six. Gades and Strobel were tops in assists with four and three respectively. Three Tigers each stole the ball twice: Holzheimer, Beth Holland and Smith.
Monte's top scorers were Tia Diggins and Ashley Hoehne each with nine points. Monte made no 3's.
MACA coach Dale Henrich had to feel mighty pleased with his team's defense. This point gets special accent for the second half in which Monte was limited to eleven points!
Tiger basketball has an upbeat look with the post-season drawing near. (Let's see an elevated temperature outside too.)
