Carrollton and Jerseyville made their league debut tonight and their stars were on full display. For the Carrollton Lady Hawks senior guards Hannah Krumwiede and Marley Mullink played very well. Both showed the ability to hit the outside shot and take the ball to the basket. Krumwiede is the seasoned leader of the team but the ability of Mullink to score will take the pressure off her on offense. With the addition of returning sophomore post player Ava Uhles the Lady Hawks have an outstanding nucleus they can count on next season. I am looking forward to seeing this team a few more times this summer.

For Jerseyville it was more of what we already knew but with a twist. Junior Abby Manns showed the ability to be an elite defender. She is long and athletic and put that to use tonight. Coach Strebel used her on the opposing point guard and she forced many turnovers and consistently made it difficult for her opponents to get into their offensive sets. Sophomore Clare Breden continues to show the ability to score at all 3 levels. She was impressive finishing in the lane while also finding space to get off the outside shot.
