Medina used a 27-point second quarter to break away from Elyria on Tuesday night to open the GCC portion of the 2019-20 schedule. The Bees scored 60 points after a slow start to earn the win. The team got a career-high 23 points, 16 rebounds and 4 blocked shots from senior Lindsey Linard. Junior Sarah McKee added 15 points, 5 rebounds and Aly Dwyer posted 7 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists to help lead the way. Hailey Tripp & Elizabeth Stuart each chipped in 11 points.

Linard and McKee reached a milestone – 500 career points – in the same game. They become the 19th & 20th players in Medina Girls Basketball history to accomplish the feat.

The team travels to Euclid on Saturday.
