All the wins were single digits. The Cougars, who almost play iron-girl basketball at times (five players), weren’t overpowering. But three wins in a week is three wins in a week. M-C’s girls had their best week of the season. They first downed R-P 40-35 in non-conference action. Payton Danielson (11 pts, 8 rebs, 6 stls) and Camryn Cox (10 pts) hit double-figures for M-C. Ellie Dahl had a career-high (17 pts, 8-10 FGs, 8 rebs) for R-P. Kaylee Ruberg chipped in 9 (pts), 6 (rebs), and 4 (asts). The Cougars then got past Randolph 49-45. Lauren Wyffels (14 pts, 10 rebs) and Danielson (11 pts, 10 rebs, 6 stls) had small-girl double-doubles. MaKenzie Kelly added 10 points (5-8 FTs). Avery Davis scored 9 points in just her second game back following a bad concussion. The Cougars made big waves at the free throw line, making 17 of 25 to Randolph’s 2 of 3. Five Cougars had at least three makes at the charity stripe. Finally, L-O fell 46-38. Danielson (14 pts, 5-6 FTs, 11 rebs) and Kelly (10 pts) reached double figures. Wyffels added 9 (pts) and 5 (stls). The wins improved M-C to 7-6, 10-13.
