The Rockets raised their Big East Conference record to 2-6 (3-8 overall). The Resorters dropped to 3-5 in the BEC (3-8 overall).

Sophomore Ellie Felsinger keyed the Rockets’ attack in the second half with nine of her 10 points.

Elkhart was hurt by cold shooting and 21 turnovers. The Resorters hit only 29 percent (10 of 35) from the field. In the first half the Resorters were only 3-for-16 from the floor.

“We struggled from the start. We just did not have the energy I am use to seeing. We seemed a step slow,” said Resorter head coach Donny Kulow.

“Shooting continues to be a problem for us. Cedar Grove played a 2-3 zone and we had 21 turnovers versus that zone defense. Our passes were not as crisp as they needed to be.

“Cedar Grove played with great confidence, shot the ball well and limited us to one shot on defense,” said Kulow.

The coach said his team’s freethrow shooting was a bright spot. Elkhart was 12-for-16 (75 percent) at the foul line, led by Camrie Schmitz who was 7-for-8.

Kianna Bahr led the Resorters in scoring with 13 points.

Melanie Obbink tied Felsinger for the Rockets’ scoring honors with 10.

Schmitz paced Elkhart in rebounds with seven and assists, two. Sonia Schubert had a team-high three steals.

During halftime, a fund-raising event was held to support the American Cancer Society and Sheboygan County’s Pink Heals program. The fund-raising was in conjunction with the Coaches Versus Cancer this past week.

Kulow commended the efforts of EL-G High School principal Ryan Faris for spearheading the fund-raising event.

“I would also like to thank the coaches, players, and communities of both Elkhart Lake- Glenbeulah and Cedar Grove- Belgium for their contributions towards this fundraising event. It was truly an honor to be a part of this special event,” said Kulow.
