Pairings Have Been Released, Indians to Have Unfamiliar Road Possibly

Posted in Uncategorized on January 24, 2010 by waukongirlsbball

The Regional Pairings have been released, and the Waukon Indians have a normal rival for the first game vs the Decorah Vikings, after that nothing is very normal.

If the Indians would move on a game or two more in the Regional 4 bracket they could face some teams that they haven’t before or at least for a very long time.

The last two seasons the Regional bracket has been basically a NEIC tournament with another team added.

This year the Indians 4 teams side has Waukon vs Decorah and West Delaware vs Oelwein.

The other side has Western Dubuque vs Dubuque Wahlert, and Maquoketa vs Central DeWitt.  Central DeWitt is 13-3 at this point and is rated #11 in 3A.  Could be a very interesting Region!

The Indians should they win at home vs Decorah would get another home game in the second round.  The Regional final will be played at West Delaware in Manchester.

Here is the link to all the 3A pairings  brackets

Waukon Downs Oelwein, Moves to 14-1

Posted in Uncategorized on January 20, 2010 by waukongirlsbball

The Waukon Indians traveled to Oelwein to take on the Huskies on Tuesday night.

Waukon was played closely through the first four minutes as the score was 9-9, but the Tribe went on a 26-2 run to close the first half.  That was more than enough to put the game away and the Indians moved on with a 70-33 victory.

Mary Halvorson led the way with a big game of 25 points.  Carissa Berger also was solid for the Indians as she poured in 14. 

 That top two scoring combo is now the 11th different # 1 and 2 top scoring combination  for a game by the Indians this year.  Other than being a goofy looked up stat it just shows a well balanced team in scoring and is tough to stop when so many different players can contribute a big game at different times.

Complete story and other stats from the game to come tomorrow evening.

Indians Take Down North Fayette

Posted in Uncategorized on January 17, 2010 by waukongirlsbball

The Waukon Indians were rounding out their non conference schedule on Saturday night as they hosted the North Fayette Hawks.  Waukon will conclude the season with 7 straight NEIC games starting next tuesday at Oelwein.

Waukon got off to a quick start once again, Mary Halvorson got her first basket of the night with a circus shot which could have drawn a foul as well, her back hit the floor about 16 feet from the rim before the ball was finished going through the net.  Logan Hjerleid also got in on the early scoring barage with 3 early baskets in the first quarter as the Indians used great defense and some quick scoring opportunites to build a 19-2 lead after one quarter.

Waukon playing without the services of starting forward Kristyna Herman got good production out of Jordon Reiser and Keri Egan at that position through the game.  Reiser had two mid range jumpers and a couple of nice assists during a run in the second quarter.  Keri Egan was 2-2 from the line and had a couple of steals as the Indians built the lead 30-13 at the half.

Waukon pushed another big quarter across the board during the third as Halvorson continued to get some baskets down low while many other Indians who got in the game got some scoring opportunities.

The starting five was out of the ball game for good around the 6: 30 mark of the fourth quarter and the Tribe’s reserves took them down the stretch for the 64-23 victory.

Halvorson led the way on the night with 17 points and 10 rebounds.  Hjerleid knocked home 14 points while collecting 3 steals.  Chelsey Dreckman finished with 8 points including 4-4 from the line on the night. 

 Carissa Berger finished with 7 points, second on the team with 4 rebounds and tied for the team high of 5 assists.  Reiser had 6 points with 3 steals and 3 assists.  Tatum Meyer finished with 4 points and team highs of 5 assists and 6 steals on the night.  Egan finished with 4 points and 3 steals.

Indians Pull Away From Valley Community

Posted in Uncategorized on January 13, 2010 by waukongirlsbball

The Waukon Indians hosted #11 ranked Valley Community of Elgin on Tuesday January 12th.

Valley came in at 11-1 with their only coming at the hands of MFL MarMac.

The Indians came out and were down 4-0 in the early going, but got a basket down low from Mary Halvorson and then a 3 pointer from the corner from Carissa Berger to get the lead back.  A scrappy Tiger team however regained the lead at 11-9 with about 2 minutes to go in the first quarter.

Then the Tribe went on a furious trademark 12-0 run that ended with a Tatum Meyer 3 point bomb at the buzzer after a Logan Hjerleid steal and pass.

A big boost to that run was caused by the emerging great play of senior gaurd Jordon Reiser, as she came in and lit both offensive and defensive ends of the game on fire.  Reiser hit two 3 pointers of her own along with an old fashioned 3 point play with a bucket and free throw conversion.

The Indians held the lead at ten and took a 33 to 23 lead into halftime.

Waukon cranked up the defense in the second half.  Reiser, Halvorson and Meyer continued to give some more offensive help and the Indians pulled away to a comfortable 20 plus point lead.  Waukon finished with a 57-36 victory over a very solid Valley Community squad.

Waukon was led by Mary Halvorson who sunk in 16 points and had a team high 7 rebounds.  Reiser knocked home 13 as she played guard and post positions on the night, and contributed a team high and career high 7 steals on the defensive end.  Meyer had 12 points and a team high 5 assists to add to her conference lead in that stat.

Hjerleid, Berger and Kristyna Herman 6, 5, and 4 points respectivly  for the Indians on the night.

Waukon moves to 12-1 on the season and host North Fayette on Saturday night.

The Waukon JV moved to 8-2 on the season with a 62-12 victory

The Freshmen team has been impressive as well moving to 8-0 with a victory over Decorah 53-43.

Posted in Uncategorized on January 10, 2010 by waukongirlsbball

The Waukon Indians hosted Turkey Valley on January 9th and defeated them by the score of 69-25.

Waukon got it going early with a couple of steals by Carissa Berger which resulted in two easy baskets to get the Tribe an early lead.  Logan Hjerleid also got in the act a with a nice driving basket and then converted from the FT line after getting fouled on a lob play. 

The Indians went 10 deep in the first half with a comfortable lead.  Jordon Reiser was instant offense off the bench as she drained two 3 pointers and got another basket in the lane all in the second quarter to help push the Indian lead to 31-11 at halftime.

The second half was more of the same as Kristyna Herman and Mary Halvorson each got a couple of baskets in the lane, Halvorson had a layup which was the result of a great pass by Herman, as the two post players have been working well together latley.

Waukon continued to push the pace with man to man defense and ended up posting an incredible 30 steals in the game.  This led to many break opportunitys and the Indian win in general for the final score of 69-25.

The Indians were very balanced in scoring and led by Hjerleid with 12 points 6 boards and 4 steals.  Reiser had 10 points, a team high 7 rebounds and 3 steals.  Carissa Berger dumped in 9 points and also posted 3 steals.
