OA girls win Henryville tournament

BATESVILLE — The Oldenburg Academy Lady Twisters kicked off the season with a trio of victories to claim the team title in the Henryville Tip-Off Classic.

Oldenburg Academy went 2-0 in pool play with victories over Providence and Crothersville to earn a spot in the championship.

The Lady Twisters outscored the tournament hosts 28-10 in the first half and went on to post a 45-32 victory.

Henryville did outscore OA 14-9 in the fourth quarter, but it was not enough to erase an 18 point deficit.

It was a “great effort by the girls defensively in all three games,” OA head coach Dan Kerker commented. “Teamwork was exceptional.

“There are always things to improve, but the girls are believing in themselves and their teammates,” he added.

In the victory over Henryville, tournament most valuable player Kirsten Ricke led the Lady Twisters with 18 points and seven steals.

Ella Lamping scored 12 points and had a team-high eight rebounds. Cora Weisenbach was third on the team in scoring with 11 points.

One night earlier, Oldenburg defeated Providence by a score of 49-28.

This time it was a strong second half that propelled the Lady Twisters to victory.

Oldenburg outscored Providence 27-12 over the final 16 minutes to secure the victory.

Ricke’s 21 points, six assists and 10 steals set the pace for Kerker’s crew.

Weisenbach, Lamping and Rachel Fairfield added to the balanced scoring attack with eight points apiece. Lamping also grabbed 13 rebounds.

The Lady Twisters opened up the season with a 64-27 win at home against the Crothersville Lady Tigers.

Oldenburg’s pressure defense held the Lady Tigers to only one field goal in the first quarter as they jumped out to a 12-3 lead.

Crothersville went five minutes deep into the second quarter before they would get another field goal. The OA lead grew to 32-5 by halftime.

Lamping came off the bench to lead OA  with 22  points and 13 rebounds. Ricke was nearly as impressive with 20 points and eight steals.

In addition to Ricke winning the tournament MVP honors, Lamping was named to the all-tournament team and Sarah Gutman received the mental attitude award, according to Kerker.
