Niagara Gazette — The Wilson girls basketball team continued its undefeated run through the Niagara-Orleans League on Tuesday night, defeating Medina 44-25. Dana Smith scored 13 points, grabbed eight rebounds and blocked three shots to lead the Lakewomen (15-2, 13-0 N-O) past the Mustangs (2-14, 1-12 N-O).

“I thought it was a hard fought game,” said Wilson coach Brian Baker. “At the end of the season here we’re really stressing good defense and rebounding.”

Emily Lasher scored 11 points and recorded five rebounds and six assists. Allie Bubar added five assists and five rebounds to her nine points.

With just one win between the Lakewomen and a perfect league season, Baker is making sure to keep the girls engaged in practice.

“I think it’s important to make practice fun at times,” Baker said. “I make sure we get the work in but I try to end practice most days with some kind of game or fun event.”
