[January 27, 2017]   The Lady Railers are having a good week on the basketball court. Lincoln is undefeated this week in the CS8 Tournament with four wins. The Lady Railers are also in the midst of a six-game winning streak as their record has improved to 13-10 over this stretch.

Lincoln 55 Glenwood 48

The winning week started on Saturday as Lincoln traveled to Chatham and defeated Glenwood 55-48 in a great comeback win.

Lincoln trailed Glenwood 30-25 at the half, but was able to outscore the Lady Titans 18-7 in the third quarter and take a 43-37 lead going into the final quarter.

The Lady Railers hung on to win 55-48 as Kaelyn Froebe put up 21 points and Kennedy Lolling chipped in 10 points.

Lincoln 65 Jacksonville 20

Monday’s tournament action saw the Lady Railers absolutely dominate Jacksonville 65-20 at Roy S. Anderson Gymnasium. Lincoln jumped out to a 13-2 lead after the first quarter and by halftime the score was already 32-11.

Jacksonville’s struggles continued in the second half and Lincoln took advantage and ran out to a 49-14 third quarter lead before finally ending things 65-20.

Kaelyn Froebe led the team with 13 points versus Jacksonville. Both Kennedy Lolling and Leah Schneider each had 10 points in that win.

Lincoln 79 MacArthur 41

Moving on to Wednesday Lincoln took on MacArthur in Decatur and handed the Lady Generals a 79-41 loss.

Kaelyn Froebe put up a career high 30 points in this one.

Lincoln’s lead after the first quarter was 19-12 as Froebe put up 13 points alone.

By halftime Lincoln had a comfortable 39-26 lead.

The blowout was beginning to be obvious by the third quarter with Lincoln up 60-31.

All that needed to be determined in the final eight minutes was how large the margin of victory would be. Lincoln nearly doubled the score and ran away with the 79-41 victory.

In addition to Froebe’s 30 points, Hailie Williams reached double figures with 10 points.

Lincoln 62 Eisenhower 44

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 on Saturday

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. Anderson Gymnasium.

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!
