Flade nets 26 as Round Lake beats Grant
Senior guard Diane Flade scored a career-high 26 points, Giselle Raygoza added 16, and Round Lake's girls basketball team defeated visiting Grant 71-48 in Northern Lake County Conference action on Tuesday night.
Flade hit five 3-pointers, as the Panthers improved to 10-8 and 4-3 in the NLCC. It's the most wins Round Lake has had since the team went 23-5 in 2008-09.
"Our seniors really stepped up throughout this game on both ends of the floor," Round Lake coach Molly Hennig said. "Diane, Emily (Etherington) and Giselle hit some big shots for us, and our posts had some key stops in the paint. Getting (freshman) Taylor Major back gave us a huge boost from the bench as well. It was a total team effort from start to finish."
Etherington and Major each scored 9 points, as the Panthers avenged their Nov. 30 loss to the Bulldogs. Major had missed 13 games in row with a knee injury.
Grant (12-7, 6-2) received 10 points apiece from Ally Mahinay and Katelyn Dupree.
