NR Girls Get Back on Track vs Amelia

The New Richmond Lady Lions girls basketball team bounced back nicely Saturday @ Amelia following two tough losses winning 46-35. Tenacious man-to-man defense held the high-scoring Amelia guards in check; NR guards Mikaela Rupp and Brandi Riley teamed up to lock down Amelia's top scorer. Offensively, the combination of Josie Buckingham and Reno Frayne were too much for the undersized Amelia posts players to handle. Buckingham finished with 16 pts, 16 rebounds, and 6 blocks while Frayne added 13 points and 10 rebs. Sarah Shoemaker and Courtney Grogan provided solid ball handling the entire game to counter Amelia's press. The win improves the lady lions to 9-7 overall and 5-2 in division play. Next vs Reading at home Monday 2/1.
