SKYLER POWERS

Waterloo senior Skyler Powers scored a season-high 25 points in a 71-54 loss to Randolph Jan. 9.

The Waterloo girls basketball team’s season-worst losing streak hit three games following a pair of losses last weekend.

New Glarus 72 Waterloo 46

The Pirates simply could not recover from a 22-point first half deficit dropping a Capitol South Conference road game Jan. 8.

“We played them tough, we just had some bad stretches,” Waterloo head coach Gabe Haberkorn said. “The second half we played them head-to-head.”

After falling behind 44-22 at halftime, Waterloo played right with New Glarus over the final 18 minutes.

Senior Skyler Powers scored 17 points to lead the Pirates, who also got 10 points each from senior Joslynn Wolff and sophomore Alyssa Baumann.

Jaylynn Benson led Glarner Knights (10-3, 3-1) with a game-high 21, while Lindsey Schadewelt added 20.

Randolph 71 Waterloo 54

Waterloo (7-6) faced the fifth-ranked Rockets on Jan. 9 and much like its game the night prior, a slow start came back to haunt the Pirates.

“They started up 14-2 and we pulled it to within seven with 5 minutes to play, we just couldn’t pull all the way back,” said Haberkorn.

Powers poured in a season-high 25 points to lead Waterloo, while Julia Asik added 10 and Wolff scored eight.

Presley Buwalda and Jorey Buwalda led the Rockets (8-1) with 22 and 18 points, respectively.
