Lady Trojans fall short in first game against C-T-F Despite a tremendous game by junior post player, Jenna Longhenry, the Lady Trojans came up short in their season opener with Cambell- Tintah-Fairmont. A tough trapping press by the Rebels caused-problems throughout the game, especially at the beginning when the Trojans had trou- ble getting the ball over half court to set up their offense. The first quarter ended with a .score of 8-16 in favor of C-T-E Once the girls started to relax and get rid of the first game jitters, things started happening offensively. Jenna Longhenry provided a huge spark off the bench scoring 8 of her 22 points in the second quarter. At half time the Trojans were down by only one point with a score of 19-20. In the third quarter the Lady Trojans scored 15 points to the Rebels 13, putting them up by one point at the end of the quarter break.

The Rebels were led in scoring by Katrina Koehler with 18 points, Brianna Luick and Mellisa Hruby with 10 each, Dani Hensch with 5, Sarah Beach with 3, and Jest Brause ..A rebounds apiece. "It was great to see Jenna dominate the inside game with her shooting and rebounding. She ended with a double- double in her first varsity game (22 points and 10 rebounds). Sophomore Stacy Wiegman was also a bright spot at the post position, (5 points and 5 rebounds), said Coach Sheila Hoernamann. "I think once the girls get some more game experience and gain confi- dence out on the floor, they,ll improve their game immensely. I'm excited to see what the season holds for the Lady Trojans."
