On the road for the third time in as many games, the Lady Macks (19-3, 12-2 Western Cloverbelt Conference) fell behind by almost double-digits to the Lady Cardinals (9-11, 8-5 Dairyland - Large), who hit five threes in rapid succession in the first half.
Later in the first, however, McDonell's relentless defense began to take its toll. The Lady Macks roared back into the lead and never took their foot off the gas until the game was firmly out of reach.
The night at Eleva was filled with emotions that went far beyond the basketball court, as the Lady Cardinals basketball team, school, and community had organized a benefit for the Jody Gehrke family. Jody is the father of three Eleva-Strum students and was injured in a horrible accident in December. A benefit account has been set up at Co-op Credit Union (CCU) or you may contribute through the GoFundMe page.
