Tori Kruse led five players in double-figures with 18 points for the Glenwood girls in a 97-35 Hawkeye 10 victory over Shenandoah on Friday.

The Rams (6-9 overall, 4-9 in the conference) opened the game on a 17-4 run en route to a 51-26 halftime lead.

Glenwood shot a season-high 60 percent from the field and connected on 12-of-20 three pointers. The Rams 97 points were its most in a five-person basketball game, smashing the old school record of 74 points set in 1993.

“We shot the ball well but I talked to the girls about this,” said Glenwood coach Leon Portrey. “We didn’t take anymore shots or any shot we don’t usually take. They were just running the floor, moving the ball and getting good looks.

Kruse connected on 6-of-8 three pointers and guard Tabi Evans was 3-for-6. Kruse finished with a game-high 18 points and Evans added 11.

Cassie Stewart added 13 points and Chelsea Konfrst and Lexi Fisher chipped in with 11 and 10 points each, respectively.

Glenwood also held a 46-27 rebounding edge.

One negative?

“We did turn the ball over 21 times but we were running up and down the court,” said Portrey. “We got good shots and played great defense, even when we put in some of the younger kids in the fourth quarter.

“Overall, this was probably our best game of the year.”

Kristin Comstock led Shenandoah with 17 points.

Glenwood 53,

Red Oak 39

Tabi Evans and Morgan Lucy combined for 30 points for the Glenwood girls basketball team in a 53-39 Hawkeye 10 Conference victory over Red Oak last Tuesday.

Lucy led the Rams with 16 points, on 7-for-12 shooting, and grabbed 15 rebounds. Evans scored 12, connecting on 3-of-7 three pointers, and dished out three assists.

Kate Renander led the Tigers with 14 points and Lauren Fellers added 11.
