NEW ULM -- Sophomore forward Tarryn Spartz scored the game’s first 13 points and finished with 23 as the Worthington Trojans girls basketball team defeated host New Ulm 62-45 Tuesday night.

Spartz scored 19 first half points as WHS led 28-24 at halftime and outscored the Eagles the rest of the way. She finished with 10 rebounds.

“We were aggressive, and we did some good things. We shifted our defense in a full-court press and that gave ‘em some problems,” said Trojans head coach Eric Lindner.

Coach Lindner said he and the Trojans (3-1) are finding out some things about themselves after four games.

“They say when you get old, you don’t want to change. But I seem to be changing as I’m getting older,” said Lindner.
