Fourth-year coach Jon Reibel along with 3-year starter MacKenzie Leahy were finally able to enjoy a victory over District 300 rival Dundee-Crown.


Holding D-C to 5 field goals for the game, Jacobs (10-8, 4-2) posted a comfortable double-digit win.

"It feels good for the girls," said Reibel. "We have a lot of good firsts this season. We mixed up our defenses. We played some man-to-man, match up and zone."

Leahy, connecting on 15-of-19 from the free-throw line, paced the Eagles with 19 points.

"My shot was off so I had to get shots closer to the rim. This was a nice win. It has been more fun winning. The last 2 years there were a lot of ups and downs. It was like a roller coaster."

Markasia Harthorne led the Chargers with 5 points. D-C was plagued by 25 turnovers.

"We are playing hard," said D-C coach Sarah Teipel. "We need to play smarter and more efficient for 4 quarters. We need to capitalize better on our opportunities. We had too many unforced turnovers."
