GIRLS BASKETBALL

WESTERN splits 2

Class 3A No. 6-ranked Western went 1-1 in Saturday’s action at the Twin Lakes Invitational. Class 4A No. 6 Logansport beat Western 60-47 in a semifinal round game. The Panthers bounced back to beat Carroll 61-41 in the third-place game.

Against Logansport, Western led 20-19 at the close of the opening quarter, but Logansport grabbed control in the second quarter and took a 38-26 lead into halftime. The Berries went on for a 49-36 lead after three quarters.

Miss Basketball candidate and Iowa recruit Whitney Jennings led the Berries with 25 points. She was coming off a 40-point game against Evansville Memorial in Friday’s opening round.

“We played a solid game,” Western coach Chris Keisling said. “We held Jennings to her season low of 25. We had an excellent first quarter and shot well, then we had that tough second quarter and fell behind. We came back in the third quarter and cut it to six. We never could get over the hump after that.”

Raven Black led Western with 12 points. Carley O’Neal followed with 11 and Caitlyn O’Neal and Jessica Givens added eight apiece.

Keisling liked how his squad took good care of the ball, finishing with just eight turnovers, and how it hit the glass. Black and Givens had seven rebounds apiece and Siera Daniel had six.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
