Lady Tigers romp Athenians, 76-40

The Lebanon Lady Tigers are continuing to get better every day.

The Tigers played better in most facets of the game in a 76-40 blowout of Crawfordsville Friday night.

"We struggled early and our kids are a work in progress," Lebanon head coach Beth DeVinney said. "We are struggling through and I think we are getting better every day, which is exciting. We got a nice compliment from the Crawfordsville coach saying that he thinks that in many ways we are coming into shape which is exciting (when another coach sees and says that). It is exciting because last year I knew how good we were and wasn't sure how much further we could get. This year, I don't know how good this group can get. We have a ton of potential and we can be a really good team by the end."

Lebanon grabbed control of the game in the first quarter, taking a 16-4 lead and never looked back.

Kristen Spolyar scored the first seven points of the game for the Tigers and had a game-best 22.

"In the first quarter we got off to a slow start and got ourselves in foul trouble," Crawfordsville head coach Tony Thomas said. "Then we had to try and do some things we haven't done before. When you are used to calling a game a certain way and it doesn't go that way, you have to make adjustments on the fly and we didn't adjust. We shot ourselves in the foot. And I told coach DeVinney that in many ways I think this Lebanon team is even better than last years."

The Athenians played better in the second quarter, getting as close as eight at 28-20, but the Tigers were able to extend the lead to 13 at the break.
