In their third consecutive Sectional Final, the second-seeded Lady Macks (24-5, 14-0 Western Cloverbelt Conference) overcame a little pregame adversity with their uniforms and quickly roared ahead of the Dragons (23-6, 13-5 West Lakeland Conference), who found themselves down 19 by halftime.
After the break, the defensive intensity and physicality of the game increased, but McDonell never allowed their opponent to make a sustained run. Eight players scored as the Lady Macks cruised to a truly impressive win, advancing to state for the third straight year!
WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Junior guard Emily Cooper was nearly unstoppable in the first half, nailing 6 threes and tallying all of her game-high 23 points before the break. Junior center Aubrey Dorn continued her impressive play, scoring 11 of her 14 in the second half. Senior guard/forward Marley Hughes once again played like a team captain, adding 11 points, while sophomore forward Sophie Schmidgall came off the bench and scored 10, putting her in double figures for the second consecutive game.
