The Resorters improved to 3-2 in the conference (4-3 overall), while Mishicot fell to 2-3 (2-4 overall).

Three minutes into the game the Resorters took a 7-2 lead on a basket by senior forward Emma Feldmann but the Indians outscored Elkhart Lake 8-3 over the next four minutes to tie the game 10-10.

Camrie Schmitz scored seven of the Resorters next eight points. On consecutive offensive trips, she scored on cuts to basket, drawing a foul and going to the free-throw line on both possessions. She added two free throws to open an 18-10 Elkhart lead with 6:45 remaining in the half.

After exiting the halftime locker room with a 25-16 lead, the Resorters never led by fewer than seven points during the second half.

With 11:30 remaining, Elkhart Lake led 38-31 and were efficient the balance of the game, scoring on eight of nine possessions, including making seven free throws, to open a 52-35 lead.

Defensively, the Resorters were able to shut down the Indians’ offense that counts on easy layups off of cuts to the basket from the perimeter, following a pass around the perimeter.

“We had some issues with the drive, especially [Hannah] Sweetman. We played better defense in the second half. Our defense set-up our transition offense,” said Resorter head coach Donny Kulow.

“We continued to struggle with our free-throw shooting. We could have opened the lead earlier but offensively we were patient. We took what they gave us.

“We were able to convert back cuts and dribble penetration,” said Kulow.

The Resorters saw balanced scoring with four players scoring nine or more points. Rachael Flora led the team with 12 points, adding a teamhigh eight rebounds.

Resorter junior guard Sonia Schubert had an all-around impact, scoring nine points, grabbing six rebounds, dishing out three assists and adding a team-high seven steals. Emma Feldmann led Elkhart in as- sists with five. “I am very happy with our balanced scoring. It does not allow the defense to focus on and stop one player,” added Kulow.
