Antioch's hot start to the girls basketball season continued Saturday.
And so did Paige Gallimore's.
The senior guard poured in a career-high 38 points, as the Sequoits defeated Taft 75-56 in the Niles North tournament.
Gallimore went 19 of 23 from the free-throw line and sank 9 shots, including a 3-pointer, from the floor. She added 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals in helping Antioch improve to 3-0. Gallimore scored 38 points in her team's first two games.
Freshman guard Ashley Reiser had a great all-around game for the Sequoits too, totaling 11 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals. Carly McCameron grabbed 12 rebounds for Antioch, while Sage Keyes came off the bench to collect 7 boards.
The Sequoits will host Resurrection at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Grayslake North 56, Prairie Ridge 43: At Mundelein, Kendall Detweiler scored 24 points and Maggie Fish added 14, as the Knights wrapped up the tournament with their second win in a row.
Detweiler, who on Friday night became the program's all-time leading scorer, sank four 3-pointers. The senior guard and senior forward Brittney Thibeaux were named to the all-tournament team for the Knights.
Freshman Sidney Lovitsch and Thibeaux contributed 8 and 7 points, respectively, for Grayslake North (3-2).
Highland Park 64, Grant 58: At Mundelein, the Bulldogs led their tournament finale 18-8 after one quarter, before getting outscored by the Giants 17-8 in the second and 18-13 in the third.
"It was a great start," Grant coach Matt Lukemeyer said. "The second quarter is what killed us. We couldn't rebound the basketball in the second quarter. Highland Park had a lot of second-chance shots."
Kaylie Kanzler led Grant (1-4) with 24 points, while Jasmine Sangster added 17. Each girl sank a 3-pointer and was named to the all-tournament team.
Highland Park (1-4) received 27 points from Grace Quirk, 19 from Sarah Glazer and 7 from all-tourney selection Lizzy LoGrande.
Elk Grove 51, Lakes 41: Down 35-25 on their home court to start the fourth quarter, the Eagles pulled within 39-38 and had a chance at the lead with three minutes left.
Free throws sealed the win for Elk Grove, however.
"Being young, we're learning how to get over the hump and close these games out," said Lakes coach Pete Schneider, whose team does not return any starters. "It will come as we gain experience. Twice we got down by double digits and fought back.
"Elk Grove has a nice team," Schneider added. "(Coach) Kathie (Swanson) is doing a good job getting the program on track."
The Grenadiers received a game-high 23 points from 6-foot Melissa Solorio, while 6-4 Amber Lindfors added 7.
Lakes' 6-2 Olivia Pawlak guarded Lindfors.
"Olivia did a great job on Lindfors," Schneider said. "We made some mistakes and gave up some points and offensive rebounds that we should have had. We needed to shoot the ball better from the free-throw line (7 of 17)."
Lakes was led by senior Kelsey Kohler with 10 points, while Natalie Pawlak and Ellie Haviland had 9 and 8 points, respectively. Schneider said juniors Alyssa Brey and Nicole Denman and freshman Izzy Quaranta "provided a great spark coming off the bench and applying great defensive pressure."
Lakes visits Cary-Grove on Monday night.
Wheaton-Warrenville South 76, Stevenson 68: At Schaumburg, the Patriots received 24 points from Sophia Way, who hit five 3-pointers, and 20 from Taylor Buford.
The loss dropped Stevenson 1-2. Like Trinity, which beat the Patriots earlier in the week, Wheaton-Warrenville South is a ranked team.
"We went (to Schaumburg) for competition, and we're getting it," Stevenson coach Tom Dineen said. "We're getting better."
DePaul-bound Megan Waldron scored 34 points to lead Wheaton-Warrenville South.
Vernon Hills 57, Woodstock North 33: At Vernon Hills, Sydney Smith scored 19 points, as the Cougars improved to 3-0 in their own tournament.
Kasey Firnbach added 12 points for Vernon Hills and Dana Meline chipped in 10.
