Girls look to build on strong start

Starting the season strong is important for any team, and the North Tama girls have done just that in 2014-15, beginning their season 7-1.

Despite their hard work, the girls have yet to be rewarded with a top 15 ranking - but the rest of Class 1A will have no choice but to take notice if the girls keep up their current level of play.

After reeling off five straight wins to start the season, the girls narrowly lost to undefeated and second-ranked Colo-Nesco by a score of 47-42, before bouncing back with a 46-33 win over GMG.

The experience of the North Tama girls is something that has most certainly helped, as the squad is loaded with juniors and seniors this year.

Senior Anna Kvidera leads the Redhawks with 11.4 points per game, 4.4 rebounds per game and three steals per game. Kvidera is shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc.

Schafer, who is tied for the team lead with 4.4 rebounds per game, is also its' second-leading scorer, averaging 7.4 points per game. Abi Watson and Alyssa Wrage average 7.2 and 6.2 points per game, respectively, with Wrage hitting an unmatched 50 percent of her three-point attempts.

Senior guard Jessi Jacobs has been efficient distributing the basketball, averaging 2.6 assists per game to go along with her 2.6 rebounds and 1.8 points per game.

The Redhawks take on Janesville (8-1) and Jesup in road contests on Tuesday, January 6, and Thursday, January 8.
