Eels get first win of the season

Wednesday, December 11, 2002

Clay City's Brittany Rood goes up for a layup in a game earlier this year. Rood had two points and a couple of rebounds in Monday's win over Vincennes Rivet.

The Clay City girls' basketball team got their first win of the season on Monday night beating Vincennes Rivet on the road 55-34.

Whitney McWilliams led the team with 22 points including four 3-pointers. She also topped the defensive effort with six steals in the victory.

Overall the Eels attack was very balanced as eight players scored and four had seven or more points.

Sarah Boone had five rebounds to lead Clay City and Amber Long had six assists. Cameron Gerber and McWilliams each had five assists.

Clay City got off to a quick start in the game as McWilliams led an explosive attack that had the Eels ahead 19-4 after one quarter.

McWilliams drilled three of her four 3-pointers as part of a 13 point quarter for her.

The Eels would go on to score in double figures all four quarters to get their first win.

Gerber added seven points to go with eight by Bryleigh Schopmeyer and 10 by Kasi Thatcher.

The Eels will face Linton next on the road on Thursday evening beginning at 6 p.m.
