Veritas boys make it five straight

December 7, 2005


— Mark Randtke led three scorers in double figures Tuesday night as the Veritas Christian boys basketball team stayed perfect with a 54-39 victory over Topeka Cornerstone.

Marcus Holman added 15 points for the Eagles (5-0), and Casey Woods chipped in 10.

Veritas was 15-of-17 from the free-throw line.

"It's great to be off to a 5-0 start. We're primarily doing it by good, hard defense and hitting the boards," Veritas coach Doug Bennett said.

"Our offense is still not quite in rhythm, but hopefully that will happen by Friday, because (Topeka) Cair Paravel's going to be our toughest challenge so far."

Friday's game will be the Eagles' home opener. It is scheduled to tip off at 8:15 p.m. at the Eudora Community Center.

Topeka - Taelyr Shelton scored 13 points, Adi Willems had 16 rebounds, and Susan Wilson made seven steals as the Veritas Christian girls beat Topeka Cornerstone.

Veritas trailed, 8-4, after one quarter but held Cornerstone to 14 points over the final three periods.

"We pressured Cornerstone real well, and they did not handle our pressure well," Veritas coach Kevin Shelton said.

Veritas had 25 steals, including six by Willems, five by Kristie Tiegreen and four by Marteka Carlton.

Veritas, which won its fourth in a row and improved to 4-1, will play Topeka Cair Paravel on Friday night at the Eudora Community Center.

"We're real excited to have Eudora for our home games this year," Shelton said.
