The No. 1 small school (Class B and under) girls basketball team in Western New York visited Springville-Griffith Institute on Feb. 10, and handed the Griffins a loss.
Iroquois took an 18-point lead by halftime, taking advantage of the Griffins playing most of the half without Nyah Solly and Mackenzie Owens.
“With those two players out it changed the strategy of the defense and made (us) adapt offensively with the change in personnel,” coach Bob Gainey said. “Unfortunately, the girls had far too many turnovers in the first half which led to an 18 point deficit at halftime. The girls started the third quarter on fire as the starters returned to the court and cut it to 9 points. Unfortunately, the deficit was too steep and the girls eventually walked away with the loss.”
Ivette Lewandowski led Springville with 21 points and Belle Oakley was named Character Athlete of the Game.
Emily McLaughlin and Logan Streety had 22 points each for Iroquois (15-1).
