On Wednesday night at the sportscenter, the Lake Region State College Lady Royals basketball team raced past the visiting Mayville State JV.
Jumping out to a 28-11 first quarter lead, the Lady Royals never looked back. A third quarter explosion, where they put 32 points on the board was the final nail in the coffin. The final LRSC 92 Mayville JV 50. Jadyn Pollert would lead the Lady Royals 17pts and Dani Schwanke came off the bench and put in 16pts.
On a special note, with the win tonight, Head Coach Danny Mertens won his 100th career game.
After the game he said, "We got off to a great start tonight and that carried us through the whole game. We turned them over 30 times and held them to under 30% from the field and 12% from three. The girls really guarded. On a personal note, the 100th career victory was a special achievement for me tonight. However, it was not just my achievement it is the achievment of every one of the girls that has played for me. I am proud of every single one of them and thankful to have been given the opportunity to coach each one of them."
The Lady Royals have a little bit of time off before they hit the road to take on Northland, 5:30pm on December 4th.
