Annawan 73, Galva 33: During an off night when junior leader Celina VanHyfte only tallied five points, Maddie Jackson (19 points) and Paige Randall (12) picked up the slack for the Bravettes. Coupled with Wethersfield's loss to Stark County, the win clinched the regular-season Lincoln Trail Conference crown for Annawan (21-2, 9-0 LTC). The Bravettes also scored a repeat clean sweep of the league titles, winning the LTC Tournament last weekend. The Wildcats were led by Alex Strom, who added 11 points to her career total that topped 1,000 over the weekend.
Mercer County 54, Monmouth United 38: With both teams trying to win their second LTC game of the season, sophomore Bailey Swanson led her team to victory. Swanson tallied 18 points, including a trio of 3-pointers, and junior Michaela Baker added 13 for the Golden Eagles (8-18, 2-6). Cassie Ellison's 12 points led United (5-17, 1-7). The Red Storm trailed by just two going into the final quarter, but the Golden Eagles outscored the hosts 18-6 in the final eight minutes.
Stark County 56, Wethersfield 39: All-Stater Sarah Hansen had a team-leading 13 points, but the Lady Geese were unable to avenge last week's two-point loss in the Lincoln Trail Conference Tournament semifinals. Madisyn Paxson's 22 points paced Stark County (17-8, 7-2). A five-point first quarter led to a 29-17 halftime deficit for Wethersfield (20-6, 6-2).
