Junior Macey Steckel fights a player from the Great Bend Panthers for the ball during a recent game at the Hays City Shootout. On Dec. 6, Lady Indians faced the Greenbacks and came away with a 53-33 victory.

Sophomore Savannah Schneider had a career high 23 points on Dec. 6 to lead the Lady Indians to a victory over the Pratt Greenbacks.

The Greenbacks started the game out by scoring on their first possession, that was then followed by a 16-3 Indian run that would foreshadow the rest of the game.

The Indians got a lead as high as 25 points twice throughout the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, the Indians dragged their lead out to 28, which would win them the game 53-33. Throughtout the game, the Indians forced the Greenbacks into 38 turnovers.

“The key was that her (Savannah Schneider) teammates were finding her, and on the press when the steal is made, she’s already up the court so they find her and get it to her and she finishes,” Coach Kirk Maska said. “They just did a great job tonight.”

Following the leading scorer Schenider, was sophomore Kallie Leiker with seven points, senior Maddie Keller with five points, sophomore Jaycee Dale and sophomore Mattie Hutchison with four points, senior Talyn Kleweno, sophomore Madyson flax, freshman Tasiah Nunnery, and sophomore Abigail Dickinson with two points, and juniors Tara Hertel and Lisa Schoenberger with one point each.

The Lady Indians are now 3-1, and will play at home on Dec. 13 against Junction City.
