LAKE PARK-AUDUBON GIRLS BASKETBALL Raiders beat Ulen-Hitterdal
A slow start didn't prevent the Lake Park-Audubon girls' basketball team from finding their groove in a 48-30 victory over Ulen-Hitterdal Thursday night.
Sophomore Bailee Bartunek continues to lead the team on the boards, after grabbing 18 rebounds in the game to go along with 14 points and five blocked shots for the Raiders.
"We dominated the offensive boards," said LP-A head coach Anthony Bryant.
Senior guard Andi Knudsvig once again paced the Raiders offensively, topping the scoreboard with 17 points.
"Ulen Hitterdal was scrappy, and really made a run in the second half, but I was proud to see our girls respond and really start moving the ball for some open looks," said Bryant.
"Maegan Anderson and Lindsey Olson applied defensive pressure and chipped in on the scoring end, and Breann Hogie played well defensively in a starting role, replacing the injured Marley McDunn," he added.
Next up for LP-A was a tough Monday match-up against the No. 4 Class 2A ranked Hawley Nuggets on the Raiders' home court, followed by a trip to Twin Valley Tuesday for a game against Norman County East.
