Lady Coyotes defeat Sedgwick County

 


The Potter-Dix girls basketball team opened its season last Friday with a 49-39 win against Sedgwick County (Colo.).

The Lady Coyotes overcame a 10-4 first quarter deficit en route to the win. They outscored Sedgwick 17-8 in the second quarter for a 21-18 halftime lead. Potter-Dix also outscored Sedgwick 28-21 in the second half.

Potter-Dix coach Jeff Einspahr attributed the slow start to first game jitters.

“I think it was just the first game jitters as the second quarter we started to hit some shots and played well defensively,” he said.

Audrey Juelfs led the team offensively with 14 points and added a team-high seven assists and six steals. Anna McLaughlin added 13 points, while Savannah Shaw led the team with nine rebounds.

The Potter-Dix boys basketball team opened its season last Friday with a 61-31 loss against Sedgwick County. Sedgwick outscored the Coyotes 10-3 in the first quarter and led 37-16 at halftime.

“They were able to capitalize on our mistakes, especially in the second quarter,” coach Chad Miller said. “ Our communication started to break down the more fatigued we became. Coach Mumm and myself though were very optimistic about the game and saw a lot of positive contributions that our players made to increase our confidence in continuing to grow and accomplishing a lot of good things for this season.”
