Junior High girls win Okaw Conference tourney

The Monticello Middle School girls' basketball teams continued their strong seasons with a pair of conference tournament championships on Oct. 25.

The eighth-grade team defeated Central A&M 17-16 to bring home the Okaw Valley championship for the Lady Sages. The seventh-graders had an easier time of it, defeating Argenta-Oreana 30-10 in the title game.

Marissa McPike scored eight points in the Lady Sages win against Central A&M. Leslie Taylor added seven points.

“This was a big win for the eighth-graders,” Monticello coach Shelley Beery said. “They lost to Central A&M last year and have now beat them twice this season. They have worked hard over the summer, and it shows this fall.”

The seventh-grade Sages continue to overpower their opponents with an unforgivable press that forced 20 Argenta-Oreana turnovers and led to eight of their 30 points scored in the championship.

The stout man-to-man defense has held opponents to only an eight points-per-game average midway through the season.

The eighth-grade team lost its first game of the season Saturday, falling to Teutopolis 24-16. Rachael Lockmiller had a team-high six points in the loss.

The Lady Sages bounced back with a 41-24 win over El Paso. McPike scored 13 points, Lockmiller had 12 and Erika Miller added eight. Monticello is 16-1 on the year.
The seventh-grade team remained perfect with two wins on Saturday and stands at 17-0 this season.
