February 5, 2011


— Kristen Finger scored 10 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and Veritas Christian’s girls basketball team held off Flint Hills Christian, 38-26, on Friday at the Eudora Community Center.

The Eagles (8-8) have won three straight games. Veritas has forced more than 30 turnovers in each of those three games. The Eagles forced Flint Hills into 32 turnovers on Friday.

“That’s what we’ve been wanting to do,” Veritas coach Kevin Shelton said. “That’s our plan, the full-court press. We’ve really started playing better lately. I’m just so encouraged with these three straight wins.”

Ellen Phillips chipped in nine points, while Madison Bennett had eight.

Veritas will travel to Midland Adventist on Monday.
