Lincoln Trail Conference Tournament
Annawan 63, Mercer County 20:
The Bravettes blitzed to a 42-11 halftime lead and never looked back in their Lincoln Trail Conference Tournament quarterfinal victory. Annawan (17-2) is seeking its third consecutive tournament title.

"We did a good job coming out and limiting our turnovers and not creating bad habits," Annawan coach Jason Burkiewicz said. "We did what we were supposed to do."

Junior forward Celina VanHyfte tallied a game-high 22 points for the Bravettes.

"Obviously," Burkiewicz said, "they didn't have an answer for Celina."

Paige Randall also reached double figures for Annawan, finishing with 13 points. Kristin Heath's six points led the Golden Eagles.

The Bravettes will meet West Central in a 6 p.m. semifinal contest on Thursday at United.

Wethersfield 71, Ridgewood 40: Sarah Hansen's hot shooting carried the Flying Geese to the quarterfinal win. Hansen scored a game-high 34 points, connecting on seven 3-pointers and hitting all five foul shots as Wethersfield outscored the Spartans 54-31 in the final three quarters.

Aly Eastman scored 12 points for Wethersfield, which meets Stark County in the Thursday's 7:30 p.m. semifinal at United. Caitlin Miller tallied eight in the victory.

Sabrina Medley and Ashley Collins had eight points apiece for Ridgewood.

Stark County 49, Galva 36: A furious fourth-quarter comeback effort by Galva fell short. The Wildcats, trailing 45-19 after three quarters, ended the game on a 17-4 run.

Sarah Jeffries led the Galva charge with eight points, and Katelyn Klein and Devon Peterson each added six. Madisyn Paxson's game-high 20 points paced the Rebels.

West Central 54, ROWVA 36: The Heat advanced to the semifinals with a comfortable win at Biggsville. Maria Steck (18 points) and Emily Hopping (12) each reached double figures for West Central. Emma Johnson scored nine points in the loss.
