Girls' basketball coach
wins 8th straight opener
by RICK DESOTELLJunior point guard Lindsey Hernden had a game-high 16 points and nine rebounds, and senior center Lauren Bright had a double-double finishing with 12 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Romeo High girls' varsity basketball team to a 43-33 non-league win over Troy last Thursday night at Romeo.

"It was a pretty sloppy opening game for us,'' said Romeo Coach Connie Hernden, who watched her team commit 22 turnovers. "We played very hard and with a lot of effort, but we still have issues with being disciplined in our offensive sets. We have to work harder in practice with knowing where we should be and being more confident with the ball in our hands. We also need to convert on our layups, when we get good looks we need to knock those down."
Sophomore Danielle Szajna had a solid performance coming off the bench with six points and three rebounds and senior guard Andrea Madden had a good all-round game, finishing with four points, two boards, two steals and two assists. Jodie Bosheers and Morgan Gardner had two points each and Kylie Resner chipped in with one point and three rebounds.
Forwards Chelsea Malburg and Briana Becker did not score any points but were a big help on the boards for the Lady Bulldogs (1-0), finishing with 13 rebounds and three steals between them.
"I thought we did a really nice job on the defensive end creating a lot of turnovers and rebounded well,'' said Hernden, whose teams have now won eight straight openers. "Individually, I thought Andrea Madden had a nice overall game as a starter. Lindsey (Hernden) had a very good floor game; her shot was a little off, but she still set the tone for us on offense and Danielle (Szajna) had a great first varsity game. She knocked down some really nice shots from the perimeter.''
