On Monday evening, the Oran Junior High School girls basketball team traveled to Meadow Heights for its first road games of the year. Oran won both, the seventh grade final was 62-4, while the eighth grade prevailed 60-6.
Coach Ethan Evans said, "I thought both teams played excellent defense. The girls were getting in the passing lanes and diving on the floor after loose balls no matter what the score was. Due to our defense we were able to get some easy buckets in transition."
In the opener, the Eagles led 22-2 after one period and tossed shutouts for the next two quarters to take a 55-2 margin into the final six minutes of mercy-rule basketball.
Addie Nichols led the way with 28. She hit 3 from beyond the arc. Bralynn Morgan had 15 and Scarlett Schlosser tossed in 10.
Sophie Bryeans had six and Molly Spane rounded out the score with a field goal.
The girls were two of six from the line for 33%. They improved to 3-0 with the win.
The second game was much like the first. Oran led 46-4 at the intermission and the defense held the hosts scoreless in the third and the score was 57-4 before the turbo-clock fourth quarter.
Grace Davis led the team with 22 points in just three periods of action. Nichols playing up, scored 13. Emma Priggel tossed in 11.
Liza Dannenmueller had eight, Maddie Stickel four and Schlosser hit both of her free throw attempts to account for her points.
The older squad, which saw all dressed play, was 10 of 16 from the line 63% and also improved to 3-0.
