SIOUX CENTER — Senior Madison Dreckman scored six of the teams ten points in overtime to lift No. 7 (4A) Le Mars to a 53-49 victory at Sioux Center Tuesday night.  Dreckman’s two free throws with six-tenths of a second to play sealed the outcome as the Lady Bulldogs snapped a two-game losing streak to improve to 7-3.  Dreckman finished with a game-high 23 points and Jaelynn Dreckman contributed 17, 12 of which came during an 18-point third quarter for Le Mars.  Victoria Rensink led Sioux Center (4-7) with 16 and Diana DenHerder added 14.

Sioux Center handed the Le Mars boys their sixth straight setback with a 72-68 victory Tuesday.  The Warriors hit 10-of-13 fourth quarter free throw shots to fend off a late Bulldog charge.  The Bulldogs trailed by ten points midway through the third quarter before going on a 21-9 surge to take a 56-54 lead with 5:19 to play in the game.  Le Mars led 66-62 with 2:16 left but the Warriors closed on a 10-2 run to close the deal.  Alex Irwin and Spencer Mackey again led the way for Le Mars.  Irwin finished with 25 points before fouling out in the final minute and Mackey had 16.  Caden Bleeker had 28 for Sioux Center.  Le Mars falls to 3-7 while Sioux Center improves to 7-3.

REMSEN — Junior Spencer Schorg scored all 13 points for the Hawks in the final quarter and led Remsen St. Mary’s to a 45-43 come-from-behind victory over Gehlen Catholic before a packed auditorium in Remsen Friday night.  Schorg finished with 26 points as St. Mary’s outscored the Jays 11-2 over the final 6:25 of the game to erase a seven-point Gehlen lead.  Schorg made three outstanding defensive stops in the final 30-seconds to prevent Gehlen from getting a shot away that could have potentially tied the game.  Skylar Waldschmitt added 12 for the Hawks.  Zach Kraft led Gehlen Catholic with 18 while Jacob Nemmers finished with 15.  The Jays fall to 9-3 for the season and 4-3 in the War Eagle Conference.  St. Mary’s improves to 8-3 for the year and 5-2 in league play.

The Gehlen girls ran their record to 10-3 and 5-2 in the W-E-C with a 53-36 win over Remsen St. Mary’s Friday night.  The Lady Jays never trailed against the 0-12 Hawks but finally shook free of St. Mary’s after halftime after leading by just 22-16 at the midway point.  Addison Weber and Lauren Heying had 13 points each for Gehlen while St. Mary’s got nine from Lexi Harpenau.  Gehlen returns to action Monday with a girl/boy doubleheader at Woodbury Central while Remsen St. Mary’s entertains River Valley Monday.

LE MARS — A couple of milestones were reached Friday night at the Le Mars Competition gym as the Lady Bulldogs won their third straight, 59-45 over Western Christian in Lakes Conference girls basketball action.  Senior Madison Dreckman became the all-time career scoring leader and coach Judd Kopperud recorded his 100th career coaching win.  Dreckman needed just two points to pass Beth Swift on the all-time list.  She got that in the first quarter and went on to finish with 15 points for the night.  Jaelynn Dreckman led the Lady Bulldogs with 20 and Annie Ellis had 11.  Le Mars improves to 9-3 for the year and are 5-1 in the Lakes Conference.  Western Christian slips to 6-7 for the season with a 2-4 Lakes Conference record.  The Wolfpack were led by Olivia Granstra with 16 points.

Congratulations to Le Mars coach Judd Kopperud on his 100th career coaching win.

 

The Le Mars boys halted a six-game losing skid with a 59-53 win over No. 7 (2A) Western Christian Friday night to tighten up the Lakes Conference race as the Wolfpack suffered their first league loss.  Sophomore Spencer Mackey poured in a career-best 24 points to lead the Bulldogs to their first win since beating Estherville/Lincoln Central December 11th.  Alex Irwin added 14 points to the Bulldog victory.  Carter Brock had 19 for the Wolfpack, who drop to 8-3 for the season and 5-1 in Lakes Conference play.  Le Mars improves to 4-7 for the year and 4-2 in the Lakes.
