Monroy, Lantz return to form for Cherryvale girls
YATES CENTER — In what ended up being their final game before entering a team-wide quarantine a day later, the Cherryvale Chargers girls bested the Yates Center Wildcats 61-28 on Thursday to move to 2-1 on the season.
“The girls came out and executed our gameplan,” Cherryvale head coach Kelsey Overacker said. “I was a little disappointed in the fact hat the played a little relaxed int he second half. But I was glad to see that we used our entire bench and saw good things all night. It’s always night when everyone in the scorebook gets some points not he board.”
Mariah Monroy led Cherryvale with 15 points while Kelsi Lantz got off the schneid with 13 points — Monroy missed the first game of the season under quarantine while Lantz had scored only two points through two games.
“We have a lot of weapons and it can be anyone on any night for us,” Overacker said. “Kelsi and Mariah both played more like themselves tonight and I’m excited to see more out our kids get comfortable win their roles and find confidence.”
Cherryvale was informed that it will enter a quarantine on Friday. The boys entered a quarantine on Thursday, meaning both teams are done until after winter break.
The Chargers are now 2-1 on the season.
