PREP ROUNDUP: Genoa-Kingston girls hoops edged by North Boone

Published: Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

The Genoa-Kingston girls basketball team fell to North Boone, 51-40, in its third game of the Pecatonica tournament Wednesday.

Andrea Strohmaier led the Cogs (5-8) with 13 points while Jessie Nay added seven points for G-K, which was within four in the last minute, but gave up a couple offensive rebounds that allowed North Boone to push the winning margin to 11.

“I thought we played with a little more intensity tonight,” G-K coach Kyle Henkel said. “In the second half we just kind of lost some people defensively and made some poor decisions.”

The Cogs finish the Pecatonica tournament with a matchup against Durand at 6 p.m. today.



Dixon edges DeKalb: Dixon took six of the 10 points in a Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference matchup against DeKalb, winning the overall series, 2,957 to 2,864.

Senior Kacie Boken led all bowlers with a 585 series, including a 253 high game. Freshman Taylor Mershon rolled the second-best series with a 569 and had games of 228 and 220. Edith Reynolds rolled a 519 series and recorded a high game of 201.

The Barbs won two of the three games to take four points.

“This was a typically close match versus Dixon – splitting game wins – we had strong Games 1 and 3 where we averaged 172,” DeKalb coach Bill Holland said. “Uncharacteristically, we only averaged 134 in the second game.”

DeKalb plays Kaneland at 4 p.m. today at Mardi Gras Lanes.
