Arabians fall to Lady Bears

The Arabians faced LaVernia last Tuesday night and it was their seventh game in six days after the Cole tournament and playing Medina Valley the night before. Coach Jim Sessions and his team were not quite ready for the pressure and speed LaVernia opened with but the Arabians fought back hard. Trailing most of the game, they “cut the lead to 4 late in the game, but LaVernia did a good job of making their free throws to finish the game,” said Coach Sessions.
“They started the game with a lot of energy that we had trouble matching. This, along with a tough shooting night, resulted in an early deficit. We did a good job of fighting our way back into the game in the second half. We played hard; we just didn’t have much left in the tank to finish off the game. This was our 7th game in 6 days and the fatigue showed some during this game. I was very proud of the comeback effort shown by the girls. They did a great job of fighting back after the slow start,” said Coach Sessions.
Alissa Stehle 6 points with 3 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 steal. Sierra Pompa 4 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal. Macey Hein 4 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 5 steals, and 2 blocks. Preslee Quisenberry 11 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, and 2 blocks. Megan Runyan 1 point, 1 rebound, and 1 steal. Clarissa Zamora 4 points, 4 rebounds, and 1 assist. Maddie Mata 3 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 block. The team made 50% of their free throws and one player fouled out.
