SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP — After a revitalizing start to the season under first-year head coach Nikki Miars, the St. Marys girls basketball program earned a 12-day rest over the holidays.
The Roughriders won their fourth straight game in 53-44 fashion at Shawnee on Thursday night to improve to 5-2 and 2-0 in the Western Buckeye League.
For a program that hadn’t won more than three games in a season since 2010-2011 and matched its best WBL win total in three seasons, its successful first seven-game stretch is rewarding to the Riders.
WAYNESFIELD — New Knoxville’s Jalen Fullenkamp scored 29 points while Andrew Arnett and Nick Topp each added 15 points in the Rangers’ 92-56 runaway victory on Friday night.
New Knoxville scored 20 or more points in all four quarters and had four in double-figures as Adam Howe scored 11 points.
New Knoxville moves to 1-1 on the season. New Knoxville hadn’t reached the 90-point plateau since a 90-61 win over Pandora-Gilboa back in 2010.
