11 I and 32 LibertyBW

Immanuel High's Presley Galpin  (11) fought for possession of the ball with Liberty-Madera Rancho's Scottie Tovsrud (32) on Dec. 6. A jump ball was called on the play. The Eagles held off the Hawks, 46-43, to pick up their first victory of the season after opening the season with two losses against large schools competition.

The Immanuel High Eagles erupted in the third quarter, then weathered a late push from the visiting Liberty-Madera Ranchos Hawks to hang on for a 46-43 girls basketball victory on Dec. 6.

It was the defending Central Section Division 3 champion Eagles’ first victory of 2018-19 after a pair of lopsided losses to large school opposition. Immanuel had a road game at Washington Union on Dec. 10 before hosting Kingsburg on Dec. 11. Results were unavailable at press time.

Immanuel trailed the visiting Hawks 27-21 at halftime, but surged ahead with a 17-4 run in the quarter. Seven different Eagles scored in the period, led by Amanda Scheidt with four points while Brooke Hatch and Laura Schletewitz scored three each. Scheidt led the hosts with 14 points while Schletewitz added 11 points.

Liberty’s Camille Vestal carried her squad with 16 first-half points, but was limited to a single 3-point basket and free throw the rest of the way to finish with a game-high 20. LeeAsia Whetsel added 10 points.
