Burnside, Iowa - The Jaguars hosted South Hamilton on Tuesday January 5th, to start the new year.


The JV tipped off at 4:00.  The opponent pressured the ball full court from that point and the Jags struggled with that pressure and the zone defense. While the defense held the Hawks to 18 in the first half, only 5 of 33 we shot from the field made the net.  The final score of 25-15 was disappointing, but the Jaguars improved their working with each other to find solutions and made better shot selections as the game progressed, even if the ball didn't find the net. Alex Kitchen scored 7, Bella Pudenz 4, Breck Mills 3, and Madison Doyle 1. The Jaguars pulled in 16 rebounds, took the ball away and had one block.  


The JVR took the court next with the same  type of defensive pressure from the opponent.  The first half saw more struggles offensively, but the Jags held the Hawks to 18 points in the first half.   The Jaguars came out of the halftime with stronger purpose and defense, much better blocking out and rebounding which held the Hawks to only 2 points in the 3rd quarter.  Out scoring  the Hawks 6-2 in both quarters of the second half allowed the JVR a win,  23-22.   While hitting for only 9/40 from the field, and 3/9 at the freethrow line the team worked together and hustled up and down the court, making all the difference in the swing of energy in the second half to the Jaguars.


Hallie Steck led the Jaguars in scoring with 7,  Alex Kitchen, and Bella Pudenz added 5 each, Audrey Calrosn added 4, Jordyn Rawley had 2 and Brylie Butrick had1.  Butrick also had a block.  The team had 10 offensive and 10 defensive rebounds. Rawley led in that column with 7, Kitchen pulled in 5, Alexis Peterson, Carlson and Steck each pulled in 2. Pudenz and Butrick each pulled in 1. Steals were led by Rawley with 5 and Steck with 4.  The team totalled 13 steals in the game.
