The Bees (14-0, 8-0) needed a strong first half, a defensive stand in the 4th Q , plus a game-high 22 pts & 7 rbs from Sarah McKee to defeat the Mustangs on Wednesday night. Medina won the GCC road contest 61-50.
McKee set a new career-high in points scored and drew a tough defensive assignment as well but received help from teammates Abby McMullen (9 pts, 5 ast, 3 stl), Madison Luthy (9pts), Elizabeth Stuart (7 pts) and Lindsey Linard (4 pts, 7 rbs, 5 blk). Alexa Nau ( 5 pts, 3 ast, 3 stl) and Katie Neate (2 pts, 3 ast) sparked the team on defense and in protecting the lead in the second half. Strongsville’s Reagan Bass racked up 21 pts/16 rbs on the night.
