Lady Wave JV wins big over Xenia

Strong fourth quarter propels Greenville JV to MVL win over the Xenia Lady Buccaneers

GREENVILLE – The Lady Wave junior varsity squad defeated the visiting Xenia Lady Buccaneers 32-15 in MVL action.

“It’s a very good win,” said Greenville JV coach, Laura Germann. “We came out with a lead after the first and then had a little struggle in the second quarter. Xenia actually took the lead at one in the second period with a combination of their defense and some unforced turnovers on our end but the kids stuck in there. We were trailing by one and the kids ended up coming back and scoring to take the lead at the half.”

Greenville took an 8-2 lead after one period of play only to have Xenia battle back and take the second quarter by an 8-6 score sending the teams to the break with the Lady Wave holding a 14-10 advantage.

Both teams struggled to find the basket in the third quarter with Greenville taking the period 3-2 for a 17-12 Lady Wave advantage with one period to play.

“It was a Green Wave second half,” Germann noted. “We inched our way and inched way. I told the kids in the locker room that good teams find their way to win at the end and that is really what we did. We got some stops defensively and then were patient on the offensive end and made the right passes and scored.”

Greenville put the game away in the fourth knocking down 8 of 14 free throws including 5-6 Addie Klosterman tosses, an Ella McClear 3-pointer and two free throws, a basket each from Lauren Wright and Ava Loudy and a Kaelyn Gump free throw leading the Lady Wave to a 15-3 fourth quarter and a 17-point conference victory.

“A lot of our points today came from the free throw line,” said Germann. “Addie Klosterman led us in scoring today. I gave the kids a challenge to find a way to be productive – how can you be productive on the floor whether it’s scoring, whether it’s rebounding, whether it’s passing, whether it’s defensively and Addie did – Addie found a way to be productive today.”

“Addie rose to the challenge as well did some of the other kids. Ella McClear and Kylar Arnett did a good job handling the ball for us today. We stuck Josie Madden in there at a quick guard and she did a pretty good job on the defensive end, so we had a few kids that were productive.”

“I told the girls that’s a life lesson,” Coach Germann concluded. “In the future how can you be productive at your job, at your house, in the community – that was our whole challenge going into today’s game is how can we find our way to be productive and I think they did a pretty good job of that.”

Klosterman led Greenville and all scorers with a game high 14-points including 8-14 at the charity stripe.
