GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Private school roundup

The Cabrini girls’ basketball team split the week, losing their first league game last Tuesday at Lutheran North 39-23.

The home team took an 11-3 lead after the first quarter and went into halftime ahead 23-13. North led 35-13 after three quarters.

“We started slowly, getting quality shots in the first quarter but not converting,” said Cabrini Coach Mike Rozanski. “Lutheran North has three all-league players returning, two of whom are 5-11 and 6-1. We attempted to take away their space inside and their remaining all leaguer hit three three-pointers in the first quarter.

“In the second quarter, we settled down and played them generally even, but had a poor third quarter which took us out of the game.”

Rozanski said the offense executed poorly and the Monarchs failed to generate any second-chance opportunities due to North’s size.

“I was pleased with holding them to 39 points, but we needed to play better on the offensive end,” Rozanski said.

Cabrini was led by Carlee Alley with 11 points.

The Monarchs responded with a convincing 45-19 win Friday over Inter-City.

The Monarchs led 11-7 after the first quarter and 23-10 at halftime. Cabrini took a 32-17 lead into the final quarter.

“I thought our defensive pressure was very consistent throughout the game, and we were able to disrupt IC's offense by changing our defensive looks and pressuring them in certain areas of the court,” Rozanski said. “We also executed better offensively with nine turnovers for the game.”

Alley led Cabrini with 15 points. Caitlyn Lefebrve and Amber Steelman each scored eight points and Kasey Jodway and Olivia Mocnik each had four points.

Makayla Thoune had eight points for Inter-City.

Cabrini heads to Christmas break at 4-2.

Last Monday, Inter-City defeated Baptist Park 46-36.

Courtney Hunter and 13 points and 12 rebounds, Thoune had 11 points and Karakynn Goering scored 10.


Gabriel Richard headed to the Christmas break on a positive note with a 53-23 win Saturday over host Clawson High School.

The Pioneers took a 12-7 lead after the first quarter and then blew the game open with a 14-3 second quarter to take a 26-10 lead into halftime.

Richard outscored the host team 17-10 in the third quarter and shut them out 10-0 in the final quarter.

The Pioneers had a balanced-scoring attack led by Kelly Henderson with 16 points and Natalie Loewengruber with 15. Jackie Reitmeyer had 10 points as Richard had three players reach double digits in scoring.

On Dec. 19, Richard lost to visiting Henry Ford 41-31. Casey Lyons had 17 points to lead the Pioneers.
