Sophomore Taylor Stenklyft scored 16 points to lead Cambridge in its non-conference victory over the visiting Dodgeland Trojans on Monday.

Stenklyft entered the game averaging 5.3 points per game before netting her season high and reaching double digits for the fourth time this season.

“Taylor was very active in the game last night,” Cambridge coach Kelly Cunningham said. “She was crashing for rebounds, which allowed her to get a few extra layups. She was also aggressively attacking the rim.”

Gracie Korth and Olivia Williams each scored eight points to help bolster the Cambridge scoring attack.

Adrianne Bader scored 12 point to lead Dodgeland in scoring.

The Blue Jays had lost their previous two games, both in Capitol South play, so returning to the win column was a welcome sign.

“Despite two losses last week, the girls still battle until the very end,” Cunningham said. “We were able to reset and prepare both mentally and physically for this week as we have three games left to wrap up our regular season.”

“We have a couple of players battling the sickness bug that is going around everywhere,” Cunningham said. “It was great to pick up the win against Dodgeland as we head into our final conference game against New Glarus on Thursday. It is also Senior Night on Thursday night so it will be a pretty exciting and full evening.”

Marshall 69

Cambridge 41

Anna Lutz scored 29 points to lead Marshall to a 69-41 victory over visiting Cambridge in a Capitol South girls basketball game Friday night.

Lutz was perfect in seven free-throw attempts and made a pair of 3-pointers. Laura Nickel joined Lutz in double figures for the Cardinals (16-4, 9-0 Capitol South).

Gracie Korth scored 13 points to lead Cambridge (10-9, 5-4) and Ashlynn Jarlsberg added 11 points. Jarlsberg only scored in the second half; Korth scored nine points in the first half, which ended with Marshall leading, 27-17.

Marshall held Mayah Holzhueter to four points. The Cambridge sophomore averages 12.9 points per game and entered the Marshall game scoring 17.75 in her previous four games.

“Marshall is a very good team and Lutz is a great post player. Mayah was working her tail off guarding her directly and overall did a nice job,” Cunningham said. “When she exerts that much energy defensively, sometimes that takes away from her offensive side of the game. Marshall continued to play their game and little by little continued to expand the lead.”
