Lady Bulldogs split


NORTH ZULCH - The North Zulch Lady Bulldogs basketball team split wins last week by defeating Burton and falling to Somerville.

North Zulch hosted both schools last week.

The second game on Friday was their last home game of the season, and senior night. The seniors were given a personal introduction before the game with their family.

Five seniors were recognized, Emma Baker, Eliza Lazenby, Cassidy Brown, Reagan VanCour and Sally Osth.

Lady Bulldogs' Head Coach Kimberly Branch had a glowing review of her seniors, saying, "They have been playing together for a while. They are an athletic group of girls that have set standards here at North Zulch. The seniors know what it takes to compete, and never showed me any lack of effort."

The first game was last Tuesday against the Burton High School Panthers, and the Lady Bulldogs earned a 12-point Victory, 38-26. North Zulch was in control the whole time and led the entire game.

Sally Osth was North Zulch's leading scorer with 9 points. Burton gave her six free throw attempts, and she made all except one of the shots.

For their senior night, the Lady Bulldogs' challenger was the Somerville Yeguas. The North Zulch girls fought hard the whole game but fell short at the end. The Yeguas walked away with a 4-point victory, 34-30.

Osth was North Zulch's leading scorer against Somerville with 12 points.

The North Zulch girls are still in the hunt for the post season, but they do not control their own fate. The Lady Bulldogs need to win out, and need Iola to lose.
