Whippet Girls Fall to Turner

The Whitewater Girls’ Basketball team traveled to Beloit Turner for a conference game on Tuesday night, December 6. 

It proved to be a defensive battle with a low score of 7-6 9:00 minutes into the first half of the game. We were able to capitalize on some steals and knock down a few shots from outside to finish out the first half with the lead 20-18.

The Whippets connected a series of breaks to the rim and some kick outs for a couple 3-point shots to give an 11-point lead 32-21, with 12 and half minutes left in the game. Being in foul trouble throughout the game, our defense shut down, and Turner took over on offense going on a 21-point scoring run. 

We battled until the end, but could not overcome the deficit, losing by 8, 60-52. 

Katie Gillette led the Whippets with 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 steals. Danielle DePorter added 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals. Mayte Navejas also added 12 points and 3 rebounds. Calli Grosinske scored 7 points with 3 rebounds and 2 steals. 

We travel to Jefferson this Friday, December 9, for another conference game.
