Kohler took a 23-10 lead after Frances Schueller buried a three-pointer with 6:40 remaining in the opening half.

The Resorters answered with a 12-3 run to pull within 26-22 at halftime. Elkhart’s comeback was keyed by its defense which forced six turnovers during the stretch. Senior guard Camrie Schmitz sparked the rally with eight points.

A 13-4 spurt by the Blue Bombers in the first 6:40 of the second half increased their lead to 39-28. Zielke led the way with six points.

Zielke, a sophomore guard/ forward, ignited Kohler’s attack with 23 points on the night.

Schmitz hit a career-high 24 points to lead the Resorters. She also had a team-high 11 rebounds, three assists and four steals. Sonia Schubert also had four steals and led in blocked shots with two.

“Camrie Schmitz is getting stronger with every game. She is starting to play like she did last year. She has not been healthy for most of the season and missed some games,” said Resorter head coach Donny Kulow.

“Camrie had very productive night, both on offense and on defense.”

“Kohler has a nice, young team with great potential. They played very well,” said Kulow.
