Indians defeat Cresco, Sweep conference schedule 12-0

The Waukon Indians headed to Cresco Tuesday night looking to finish up the conference schedule with a perfect record.

The Indians prevailed with a 47 -37 victory over the Cadets.  The Indians and Coach Klinge swept for the 3rd time in the six season that he has been head coach at Waukon, an impressive feat.

The Indians started off a bit slow trailing 10-6 after the first quarter, Waukon got baskets from Halvorson, Herman, and Berger in a turnover riddled quarter.

In the second the Indians turned up the pressure  on defense and also got things going on the offensive end outscoring the Cadets 16-11 taking a 22-21 lead into the lockeroom.  The Indians had to feel good and bad at that point.  Bad that they had committed a few more turnovers than they like to, and that they didn’t convert a couple of easy hoops.  Feeling good that they still had the lead despite that effort in the first half.

In the second Waukon spread the gap to 10 a handful of times and never let the Cadets get closer than 6 in the final quarter.  Pressure on the Cresco shooters and smart decisions with patience paid off in the second half for the Indians.

Sophmore Kristyna Herman led the way for Waukon having a great game with 17 points and 8 rebounds.  Mary Halvorson was also solid, scoring 14 for the Tribe.  Logan Hjerleid had 8, and Carissa Berger had 6 points 5 rebounds and 4 assists.  Tatum Meyer finished with two points and contributed with a team high 6 asissts and also had 7 rebounds.
