Young Lady Norse Route Crestview/Win Two At North Miami

The 6th grade Northfield Lady Norse topped Crestview in an incredible display of unselfish team ball Thursday!  Through great ball movement, putting the team before oneself, and half of the team having a basket by halftime, the Lady Norse proved to be too deep for Crestview, as they jumped out to a 20-9 lead at halftime! The Norse came out in the second half & showed that they believe that defense is just as much fun as offense, holding the Raiders to just 2 second half points! Their stellar defense collected 18 steals by 7 players and they were beasts on the boards with all 10 players grabbing a game total of 28 rebounds!  Together, the Lady Norse posted a 36-11 win.  Ainsley Dale, Addy Rosen and Annie Schuler led the Norse with 6 points each, Autumn Custer, Kalista Ballschmidt, and Maci Buzzard added 4 each and Crysta Kowolczuk, Emily Pennington and Ella Satterthwaite each found the bucket to round out the scoring column!  What a great TEAM effort & win on both ends of the floor!!!


On Saturday Feb 20, the 6th grade Lady Norse basketball team traveled to North Miami for two county rival match-ups!
The Lady Norse began the day against Wabash.  The Norse jumped out to a quick lead and hustled on defense, ending the 1st quarter with a 12-2 lead.  By halftime, the Norse showed that they are a balanced team with 7 girls in the scoring column and a lead of 21-10!  The girls came and showed a lot of heart & hustle in the 3rd quarter outscoring their opponent 9-2!  The Norse were led by the heart, hustle & determination of Kalista Ballschmidt, who posted her season high of 8 pts!  The following girls added to the scoreboard in this great team win:  Annie Schuler 7, Emily Pennington 6, Addy Rosen 5, and Ainsley Dale, Maci Buzzard, Crysta Kowolczuk and Julia France all added 2 pts each!
After the Wabash win, the Lady Norse immediately faced a tough Manchester team!  The Norse had beat Manchester by 1 earlier in the season & it was obvious that the Squires were out to get the Norse!  Despite, bloody lips stuck in braces … the Norse fought on in a great defensive effort against Manchester only allowing the Squires to score 7 points by the ending buzzer!  The Lady Norse played hard and pulled off the 16-7 win.  Annie Schuler led the blue with 8 and Emily Pennington and Addy Rosen added 4 each!
The Lady Norse are at North Miami again this Saturday
