The Timothy Lady Trojans opened their season this past week at a Holiday Tournament at Aurora. The girls finished 2-2 with a 5th place finish. Opening game was against Ottawa, the Lady Trojans got out to a slow start but midway through the 2nd quarter they got the lead down to just 3. Ottawa was just too strong and we could not get back into the game, but the girls kept playing hard. Jordyn Strube lead the scoring with 14 points and Sureya Alex added 7 points.
Next, the Trojans took on the host team Aurora. It was a very well matched game. The Trojans only had 6 girls suited to play due to a series of injuries and they fought hard but could not catch back up after a slow 2nd quarter. TC lost 46-36. Sureya Alex lead the scoring with 9 points. Hanna Schuringa added 8 points and 14 rebounds. Lauren Gehrke added 8 points as well.
The 3rd game we saw a scrappy Harvard. Timothy came out strong from the beginning and used our inside game to take control of the game. TC won 51-29. Olivia Schuringa had a big game with 22 points and 13 rebounds. Hannah Schuringa added 10 points and 18 rebounds. Heidi Westra had a solid game with 6 points, 5 assists and 7 rebounds.
The final game of the tournament saw TC matched up agains Indian Creek. A nice shooting team had us adjusting our defense at half. Just being up 4 points at half we extended our Zone and worked hard to eliminate the 3 point shot. A great 3rd quarter helped achieve that. TC won 54-39. Sureya Alex and Olivia Schuringa lead the scoring with 15 points. Hannah Schuringa added 13 points and 11 rebounds. Heidi Westra had a great defensive game to help change the game and added 6 points, 4 assists and 6 rebounds.
The Lady Trojans are off this week and open our Conference play on Tuesday, November 28 away against St Edwards.
