!2 J The Lovell Chronicle I December 6, 2012 Lady Bulldogs improve as they drop two of .three BY DAVID PECK After two straight state championships, the Lovell Lady Bulldogs are a work in progress in 2012-13, and even in three games at the Riverton Invitation- al against Class 3A teams, they showed significant progress. Lovell fell to top-ranked 3A power Douglas, 68-48, fell to Lander 58-57 and de- feated Worland 53-41. "Going into the tour- nament we knew the first game was going to be a challenge, and by the end of the tournament the team did a better job with shot selection and with not be- ing lackadaisical with the ball," coach Chris Edwards said. "Against Douglas we sat back and waited for the ball to get to us instead of stepping to the ball. Doug- las would step in and go the other way for easy buckets. 'rhroughout the week- end each girl got a little more comfortable with her new role." The Lady Bulldogs played without senior Shy- anne Wilske and sophomore point guard Lauren Hinck- ley, who was expected to start at the point but had to tend to family matters over the weekend. That put some players out of position on a weekend when the team was already treading new ground with four new starters. "As a coaching staff we'll have to revamp some of the offense and develop more continuity with the flow of the offense," Ed- wards said. "Some players are still not sure exactly where to cut and screen to, and that caused some con- gestion at times. At times the girls were not being strong with the ball and seeing the defensive ro- tations before they made their decisions. "This tournament was a great assessment for us and will really make our girls mature faster. At times we had plays develop and our girls would be there, but the aggressive style of the teams we played took those plays away. Over the three games we saw differ- ent girls become more con- fident in their abilities and they were willing to chal- lenge the other team both offensively and defensive- ly. These type of games are only going to help us down the road." DOUGLAS The Douglas Bearcats shredded the Lady Bulldogs 68-28, jumping out to a 20-4 lead after the first quar- ter and leading 40-14, then cruising in the second half. "Douglas is the deepest team I've seen," Edwards said. "They're solid at every position. At full strength that's as good a team as we're ever going to see. They're strong, athletic and fundamentally sound. They force you out of your com- fort zone and force numer- ous turnovers with their ag- gressive play." No Lady Bulldogs scored in double figures, but senior Chelsey Ellis came the closest, scoring 9 points. Amanda Shumway added 7, Emilee Reasch 4, Kassi Renner, Dominique Allred, Kassidy Hetland and Kim Shumway 2 each. LANDER Lovell started strong against Lander, taking an early 16-7 lead, but ulti- DAVID PECK Lovell senior Dominique Allred fires up a jumper during Lovell's game against Lander at the Riverton Tournament Saturday morning.

Lander closed the first quarter with a 6-0 run to trail 16-13, tied the score at 20 in the second quar- ter and led 30-26 at half- time. Lander led 43-35 late in the third, but Dominique Allred hit a jumper, Kassi- dy Hetland drained a three- pointer and Kassi Renner knocked down a shot to cut the lead to one after three, 43-42. The Lady Bulldogs could never take the lead in the fourth, though they ral- lied once more after trailing PATrl CARPENTER Aly Schneider earned two first place ribbons at the Big Horn Basin Conference Middle School swim meet at the new Worland pool on Dec. 1. She cut time from both her 100 IM and 50 Breaststroke times to win the events. In this photo she is swimming the 50 Fly in an earlier meet at the Lovell pool. Schneider sprints PAT PARMER Aly Schneider was the fastest swimmer in the ba- sin in the 100 IM and 50 Breaststroke Saturday as the LMS swimmers and divers finished their 2012 season in the new Wor- land pool. The meet started on a high note with the 200 medley 'A' relay taking five seconds off their best time to crank out a sec- ond place finish. Next, Katie Harder finished in l lth place in the 200 freeystyle to earn three points. With Schneider and Brent Snyder finish- ing first and third in the IM and the 50 freestylers not placing, Snyder hit his dives, placing second in 5-dives. Johnston took seventh in the 50 Fly, and 100 Free Relay 'A' finished in 12th place for 20 points. Mylee McArthur nabbed eighth place in the 50 Back. Schneider and John- ston teamed up in the 50 Breast with Schneider taking first, and Johnston second, both cutting over two seconds from their previous best time. The 200 Free Relay closed the meet with the 'A' squad (Snyder, Johnston, Full- er, Schneider) finishing in to two fourth place. Teammates Andrea Monterde and Katie Hard- er hacked 10 seconds from their 100 Free and 200 Free times with Katrina Twitchell knocking over five seconds offthe 50 free. With everyone taking time off at least one indi- vidual event, Coach Jan Martin was pleased with the results of the confer- ence meet and said it was a good way to end the season.

In the final minute an inside banker by Amanda Shumway and a steal by McArthur again cut the lead to one, 55-54, but Lovell had to foul to stop the clock and Lander hit three of four free throws down the stretch. A half- court buzzer-beater by Ellis made the final score 58-57. "We gave up too many points in transition," Ed- wards said. "We didn't do a good job getting back and communicating. Over- all, we improved our offen- sive our offensive flow. We just hurt ourselves at times with quick shots and care- less turnovers. "I was proud of our kids for how they battled back into it and gave themselves a chance at the end." Amanda Shumway fin- ished with 20 points, Ellis 15, Chayli McArthur 8, Kim Shumway 6, Hetland 3, Renner and Allred 2 each, Meryk McArthur 1. WORLAND The Lady Bulldogs con- tinued their progress by stopping the Worland Lady Warriors 53-41 Saturday at Riverton High School. Again, Lovell jumped out to an early lead, 11-4, and again, the opponent came back to take a lead, 14-11, after the first quarter. But after Worland took a 16- 13 lead early in the second period, Lovell exploded for a 13-0 run to lead 26-16. Kim Shumway sparked the run with 8 points, looking strong in the middle. Lovell went on to lead 30-22 at halftime, struggled in the third as Worland out- scored the Lady Bulldogs 9-5, then pulled away in the fourth, outscoring the Lady Warriors 18-10. "We did a better job of getting into our offense and getting the ball in certain spots that made us success- ful," Edwards said. "We had two to three-minute spurts of turnovers that hurt and let Worland back in the game." Kim Shumway finished with 19 points, Ellis 10, Re- asch 8, Amanda Shumway 7, Hetland 4, Allred and Meryk McArthur 2 each, Chayli McArthur 1. LADY CHIEFS TO TOWN The Lady Bulldogs have only one game this week- end when the Wyoming In- dian Lady Chiefs come to town tonight (Thursday) for games at 4 (JV) and 5:30 p.m. It will be the first games of the season for Wy- oming Indian. "They'll be a little young- er this year," Edwards said. "They graduated the Hill girl, who was a significant part of their team last year. We're going to have to do a good job taking care of the ball against their pressure. If we can utilize our size against them we'll create some mismatch problems for them." BOYS 2A NORTHWEST Conf.
