Lincoln Head Coach Taylor Richmond gets her team back
on track during a timeout in Thursday night’s
game versus Eisenhower.
Thursday's tournament action returned to Lincoln’s home court as the
Lady Railers dominated Eisenhower for much of the contest and came
away with a 62-44 win.
Lincoln’s lead was 26-7 after the first quarter, thanks to Kaelyn
Froebe connecting for four three-pointers.
The junior was on fire the entire first half as she poured in 22
points and led the team to a 43-16 halftime lead. However, two quick
third quarter baskets by Froebe and Grace Bossingham would be all
the scoring Lincoln fans would witness by their Lady Railers until
the end of the quarter.
With the score 47-20 Eisenhower took advantage of the scoreless
streak and went on a 19-0 run. Finally Lincoln’s scoring drought
ended when Leah Schneider made two free throws with :33 seconds on
the clock. Lincoln’s huge lead had disappeared and Eisenhower was
pumped up, trailing 49-39 going into the fourth quarter.
Grace Bossingham goes
up strong to the basket after making a nice move in the lane.
Bossingham made the bucket and the “and one” to extend the Lady
Railers lead over Eisenhower.
Froebe was a little quieter in the second half, scoring just four
points, but the team was lifted by the strong inside game of Grace
Bossingham. The “Boss” put up 7 of her 11 points in the fourth
quarter and Lincoln cruised to the 62-44 win.
Froebe’s 26 points led all scorers.
Kaelyn Froebe finished her night’s work with 26
points for the Lady Railers.
4-0 in the tournament so far with a rematch with Rochester coming up
A perfect record for the ladies so far this week with the big test
coming on Saturday. Lincoln faces Rochester on the Lady Rockets home
court at 3 p.m. as the CS8 Non-city Tournament wraps up.
Lincoln Head Coach Taylor Richmond was pleased with the week’s
performances. “We are playing good basketball right now,” said
Richmond. "Our goal is to put four quarters together. So we are
almost there. We got three tonight and we got three last night. We
are on our way to putting four together and playing good basketball
so that is nice.”

"It’s always nice to be playing your best basketball at the end of
the year. That’s what you want. As the season progresses you take
your lumps but hopefully by the end you are playing the best
basketball that you can. I think that we’ve been playing good
basketball and I think our kids are capable of extraordinary things.
I think there is more good basketball to come so I am looking
forward to that,” said Richmond.
Of the recent performances by 6’1 freshman Leah Schneider, Richmond
noted, "I think Leah is playing really well. She’s playing some
great basketball at the JV level.” Schneider reached double figures
in every JV game this week. Her high game being 28 points versus
Glenwood. Richmond continued praising Schneider’s play as the
freshman jumped in and contributed 24 points in the four games
played for the Varsity in this week’s tournament. "I think she’s
playing good basketball at the Varsity level. It’s just a matter of
comfortability and getting used to being in that Varsity game at the
Varsity pace. She’s completely capable of it though. I think each
game she gets a little bit better and that’s what we want. It’s
exciting to see a freshman coming on the way she’s coming on.”
Richmond continued singing the praises of her other inside players
as well. "Grace Bossingham and Lauren Block are playing well inside.
Emerie Wieber has had some big games for us inside. So honestly all
of our post players are playing good basketball right now. Sometimes
it’s hard to decide on who’s gonna be in the game because they are
all working really hard and that’s exciting to see.”
Morgan Lolling’s quick steal and
basket extended the late-game lead to 60-42 Thursday night at Roy S.
Always exciting to see is the play of juniors Kaelyn Froebe and the
Lolling twins. Froebe put up a total of 90 points this week alone.
Her six three-pointers in the first half versus Eisenhower is her
own record best. The school record for the girls is eight
three-pointers in a game by Stacy Cook. It’s only a matter of time
before Froebe starts shattering records on that wall. Twins Kennedy
and Morgan Lolling also combined to score 63 points this week.
Kennedy just edged out sister Morgan for “braggin’ rights” in the
scoring column but more importantly to the tough competitors,
without a doubt, is the wins that were put in the scorebook.
Congratulations to the Lady Railers on the 4-0 record this week and
best of luck keeping that six-game winning streak alive!
