WINDOM - Consecutive 3-pointers from Kendra Ludeman, Kaylee Kirk and Sara Stoneberg capped an early run by the Tracy-Milroy-Panthers Saturday afternoon as they vaulted out to a 17-4 lead on the host Windom Area Eagles in nonconference high school girls’ basketball action.
T-M-B maintained a double-figure lead the rest of the way, improving to a perfect 15-0 for the season with a 59-39 victory over the Eagles, who suffered an early game-ending injury to junior forward Madison Maras.
Maras, who is averaging close to 20 points per game, hit the floor hard in a tumble for a loose ball just two minutes into the contest.
Midway through the first half, the Eagles began handling T-M-B’s pressure defense with some good passing and sliced the gap to 20-12. The Panthers, however, countered with several baskets by vocal leader Gabbie Gervais, along with an impressive steal and layup by Kirk and opened up a 32-16 halftime lead.
Junior guard Hallie Will played a very strong second half for the Eagles, finishing with a game-high 19 points, while senior guard Leigh Hanefeld and freshman forward Maurissa Isaacs each scored seven points for Windom (4-12).
Kirk (15), Evelyn Dolan (12) and Ludeman (10) combined for 37 points to lead T-M-B’s balanced attack.
