The Lady Pioneers JV hosted the Lady Wildcats of Lawrence North HS. The Varsity and JV games against Lawrence North are the replacement games for the Avon cancellation.
The Lady Pioneers jumped out to a 11-2 lead at the end of the first quarter on the effort of Kalyn Bunch’s 7 points in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Pioneers made repeated turnovers that allowed for the Lady Wildcats to cut the lead to 4 before a short run by the Pioneers pushed the halftime lead up to 7 at 21-14. During the second half, the Pioneers and Wildcats pushed the game back and forth and kept the game within 5 points. Three quick baskets by the Lady Wildcats at around 2:00 in the fourth quarter brought the game tied at 37-37. But strong free throw shooting by the Lady Pioneers in the fourth sealed the victory for the Pioneers. Kaitlyn Strietelmeier and Anna Overholser each hit two free throws with less than 10 seconds in the game to seal the 44-41 win.
Sophomore Anna Overholser lead the team in scoring with 13 points in the Pioneers victory. The JV team’s record now stands at 10-7 for the 2020-2021 season. The team’s next game will be Thursday night against Plainfield. The Girls JV game will start at 7:15.
