VHS Lady Tanagers collar MHS Bulldogs The Vermillion High varsity Lady Tanagers rolled over the Madison Bulldogs 60-36 in girls basketball Sept. 30 at Madison in a win ignited by a first-quarter blitz.

Alison Obr sank five 3-pointers to score 15 points.

The Lady Tanagers jumped in front 17-2 after the first quarter, went into the locker room up 27-16 at halftime, and then led 44-30 going into the final period.

�This was our best team effort of the year so far,� said VHS Coach Lance Luitjens. �Defensively, we were too much for them to handle. I think the trademark of this team is our defensive intensity and pressure.�

VHS improved its record to 6-4, while MHS dropped to 5-4.

VHS connected on 7 of 13 free throw tries while the Bulldogs made 15 of 23 from the line.

Several significant individual efforts contributed to the win.

�Leslie Larson had a great game scoring 10 points and holding their leading scorer to 9,� Coach Luitjens said. �Obr got us going offensively from the perimeter which opened up the inside for our post players. Donnelly, Tuetken and Sarah Mollet combined for 20 points off the bench.�
