The final month of high school basketball season rolled along Tuesday night with Twin Valley League action in Troy and the Trojans split a doubleheader with Wetmore as the Cardinals won the girls game while the Troy boys completed the split.

GIRLS

Despite committing 25 turnover and being down their starting point guard the Wetmore girls basketball team improved to .500 on the year with a 44-33 win over Troy.

Both teams struggled offensively early on, but Wetmore freshman and reigning mscsports.net athlete of the week Kenzie Strathman notched eight first quarter points giving the Cardinals a 13-6 lead after one.

Wetmore continued their strong defensive play into the second quarter outscoring the Trojans 11-4 in the second quarter to lead 24-10 at the half as Strathman scored six more points while sophomore Abby Schumaker added five.

The Cardinals put the game out of reach with a 13-9 third quarter, while Strathman went 5-of-6 in the fourth to finish off the victory.

Wetmore (9-9, 4-6 TVL) was led in scoring by Strathman who finished with 23 points, 21 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 blocks while shooting 9-of-12 from the free throw line.

Freshman Avery Euler led Troy (2-14, 1-8 TVL) in scoring with 17 points, shooting 6-of-12 from the stripe.

Wetmore: Kenzie Strathman – 23, Reagan Osterhaus – 6, Abby Schumaker – 5, Taylor Fillmore – 5, Alyssa Bloom – 3, Campbell Brown – 2.

Troy: Avery Euler – 17, Abby Parks – 6, Alyssa Schmille – 5, Holly Williams – 3, Sidney Fleek – 2.

BOYS

Behind four double-digit scorers the Troy boys basketball team revenged a midseason loss to Wetmore with a 67-54 win over the Cardinals Tuesday night at home.

The Trojans wasted no time jumping out in front as senior Jacob Mott notched seven first quarter points giving Troy a 14-6 lead after the first quarter.

The lead ballooned to 15 at the half, as freshman Cam Anderson and senior Reid Jasper each scored six points in the quarter giving the Trojans a 29-14 lead.

Troy kept their double-digit lead through the third quarter and iced the game away in the fourth quarter with 10-of-12 shooting from the free throw line after Wetmore pulled within eight.

The Trojans (6-10, 4-5 TVL) finished 18-of-21 from the free throw line which was the difference in the game as Wetmore (5-12, 2-7 TVL) went 0-for-9 from the stripe.

Troy will next be in action Friday on the road at Frankfort, while Wetmore will host Linn Friday night.
