COLONY — Through a relentless defense effort, the Crest Lady Lancers held Jayhawk-Linn to 11 points in the first half, and earned a 35-26 victory during senior night on Thursday evening.
“We were just trying to make sure they couldn’t shoot outside shots, or get it to their bigs down low,” Crest head coach Megan Mason said. “Our 32 zone has been working for us. So it was a big thing for us because I knew they could attack from the outside and down low.”
Two transition baskets from Anna Hermreck and Aubree Holloran helped the Lancers get off to a 4-0 start. After the Jayhawks battled back, Holloran answered with a 3-pointer, and Lindsey Godderz connected from just inside the line in front of the Jayhawk’s bench to give Crest an 11-6 lead.
