GRAND RAPIDS – The Lady Rams basketball team traveled to Cornerstone University, Saturday, Dec. 22, to take on Wayland in the Cornerstone Holiday Tournament. The Rams ran away with the game, leading 29-17 at the half, and then claiming the victory 62-46 to earn a berth in the tournament finals. The win moves the team’s record to 5-1 on the season.
"We came out firing on all cylinders and finally put together four quarters of offense,” said Ram head coach Brad Wilson. “We scored double digits in all four quarters and reached the 60-point mark for the first time, which was one of our goals.”
Rockford’s Anna Glynn led all scorers with 14 points. Hannah Morgan followed, tallying 13 points, and Syd Reinke notched nine.
“I’m proud of the way this team is coming together,” Wilson said. “Free throw shooting and limiting turnovers are going to be a major point of emphasis over the break.”
The Rams play next Thursday, Dec. 27 against the Rangers of Forest Hills Central team in the Cornerstone Holiday Tournament championship game at 4 p.m.
“We were fortunate to beat FHC in overtime last week, so it should be a very good game,” concluded Wilson.
