The Luxemburg-Casco girls kept their hopes alive for a conference championship by dominating the Marinette Marines 64-25 in a North Eastern Conference game Saturday afternoon in Luxemburg. After Marinette scored the first basket, the Spartans went on a 10-0 run and eventually went into halftime with a 33-9 lead.
L-C Coach Jeff Jodar was able to rest his starters much of the second half as the Spartans cruised to an easy win. Playing three games in four days the L-C will have Sunday off before playing Monday night against Waupaca. If the Spartans prevail against the Comets, they will claim a share of the North Eastern Conference championship with Freedom and Wrightstown.
The Spartans had three players in double figures with Cassie Schiltz scoring 16, while Jenna Jorgenson added 13 and Freshman Lauren Adams dropping in ten points.
