January 8, 2013


— Veritas Christian rolled over Wentworth Military, 65-8, in high school girls basketball on Monday at the Braymer Invitational.

The Eagles, led by senior Alison Dover’s 14 points, held Wentworth scoreless in the second and fourth quarters, allowing just four points each half.

Senior Madison Bennett scored 13 points with nine steals, and sophomore Macie Dressler, who started her first game, added 12 points.

Veritas (6-3) will play the winner of today’s Braymer-Breckenridge game at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Braymer, Mo. — Thomas Bachert scored 20 points, and Veritas Christian won its first-round game against Wentworth Military on Monday at the Braymer Invitational.

The large margin of victory offered plenty of positives for the Eagles, but Veritas coach Gary Hammer singled out the Eagles’ 7-for-10 performance at the free-throw line as particularly promising.

“We had been struggling, so it was nice to see us shoot a good percentage this time,” Hammer said.

Veritas (8-1) will play a yet-to-be-determined opponent in the second round of the tournament at 9 p.m. Thursday.
