GILMOUR --  The 2011 Lutheran West Women’s Basketball Team kicked off their season with an away game at Gilmour Academy. Facing the 15th ranked team in the Cleveland area, the Lady Longhorns, a team consisting of only two seniors, Katherine Konstan and Sam Castro, knew they had a tough game ahead of them.

Although being outscored and out rebounded from the start that didn’t stop their strong effort. Lutheran West hoped to tire Gilmour which only ran seven deep, but by the end of the half Gilmour led 32-20. Down by 12 Lutheran West knew they had to fight hard in the second half. Post players juniors Amanda Stephens and Ari Tomasula had their hands full trying to shut down the 6’3 sophomore Jess Janota who couldn’t be stopped scoring 26 points in the post.

Being outscored in the third quarter 18-7 their spirits were lifted when newcomer, junior Breanna Linder, took the ball coast to coast for a three point play, also junior Bre Coreno made a three to outscore the Lancers 12-10 in the fourth quarter. In the end the Longhorns came out with a loss 60-39. The high scorers were juniors Lindsey Tomola with eight and Lindsay Thomas with nine.
