Girls’ Basketball takes down Red Wing Wingers

The girls huddle up and cheer after introductions.

Last Friday, the girls’ basketball team had a home game against the Red Wing Wingers.

The crowd was on the edge of their seats as the ball went back and forth. It was basket after basket for each of the teams, the score creeping up on both sides. Going into the half-time break, Red Wing was up, 30-24.


The Tigers’ points were evenly distributed amongst the players. Junior Kendall Kenis led the team with nine points off of three three-pointers. Senior Taya Jeffrey followed with four while senior Jordan Juveland and freshman Nevaeh Wacholz each had three. Senior Annika Veldman and junior Morgan Luhring each tallied two points in the first half. 


The game resumed, and right off the bat, Albert Lea caught up and even surpassed the Wingers. The Wingers put up a fight, but in the end, Albert Lea won, 62-56. 

Scoring for the Tigers were: 

Morgan Luhring: 8 

Annika Veldman: 13 

Taya Jeffrey: 13 

Jordan Juveland: 5

Kendall Kenis: 18 

Nevaeh Wacholz: 5 


Overall highlights: Luhring’s many steals and layups, Walcholz’s steals and rebounds, Kenis’s five three-point baskets and Veldman’s five layups in the second half. 


Make sure to catch the girls’ next home game this Friday. In the spirit of Holidaze, the theme is “I Hate Winter.”
