After losing three straight games, the Danbury girls’ basketball team righted the ship with a 43-7 victory over Maumee Valley Country Day last week.
After improving to 9-8 two weeks ago, the Lakers fell on hard times, losing to three quality opponents in Toledo Christian, Cardinal Stritch and Huron to drop to 9-11.
Danbury (10-11, 9-4 TAAC) took control from the outset as it connected on a number of outside shots against the Hawks’ zone defense.
Danbury raced out to an early lead and held a 19-2 advantage after one quarter before pushing the margin to 25-6 at halftime. The Lakers controlled things in the second half as well, outscoring MVCD (1-17, 0-12 TAAC), 18-3, in the final two quarters.
Lavelle led all scorers with 14 points. Stephens finished with eight and Stephanie Kukay and Katie Almendinger scored six and eight points, respectively. Cammie Lonsway, Miranda Vargas and Kennedy Jackson each finished with two points to lead the Hawks.
Danbury hosts Ottawa Hills next Thursday on Senior Night with a chance to finish the year at .500 with an 11-11 record. And, after going 7-7 in the conference last season, a win would put the Lakers at 10-4 and assure them of a second-place finish in the TAAC.
