RIPON — Ripon Christian kept Delhi scoreless in the third quarter to highlight a 56-13 victory in the first round of its own Lady Knights Classic Monday.
Ripon Christian (4-4) shot out to a 20-4 lead but remained relentless on the defensive end throughout, even with its key players benched in the second half.
“The entire team contributed and all players saw plenty of playing time,” RC coach Kirk Tillema said.
Forward Kelsey Tillema led the way with 16 points, eight rebounds and six steals. Mikaela Alger turned in 13 points, and fellow post player RaeAnn DeRousse added seven points and eight boards.
