HAMLET â€”Â With senior leader Justyne Kranenburg sidelined, Oregon-Davis wanted to get off to an especially good start Wednesday.
The Class A No. 5 Lady Cats wasted no time putting a big, fat check mark next to that item on the to-do list.
Powered by its swarming full-court press, OD turned the opening minutes into a layup drill, rattling off a stunning 40 points in the first quarter â€”Â 22 off of 13 Westville turnovers â€” and cruised to a 78-32 girls basketball win over the visiting Blackhawks at The Den.
School was back in session for many schools this week, and it was back to a routine for not only the classroom but for extra-curriculars. Here, Lincoln Junior High teacher and athletic director Carol Gilbert finishes making popcorn for a junior high basketball game, as Johnna Antich helps in the concession stand.
