Girls Varsity Basketball · Lady Wolves Soar Past Eagles in Home Opener


Coming off a loss isn’t always easy, especially when you feel you play better than the final score showed. The Boone Grove Lady Wolves quickly shook off any lingering memories of Saturday’s loss by blitzing the Lake Station Eagles 51-44. The Wolves were  paced by the Pfister sisters, Madi and Kate, who poured in 14 and 17 points respectively.

The  Pfister sisters made all of the 8 three pointers the Wolves hit on the night, with Madi Pfister’s hot streak starting in the first quarter scoring 11 of her 14 points. “We were hot tonight, happy to be making these shots. This was a fun game, this was one  of the best teams we’ve played”, says Madi.

Last  season, the Wolves went into Lake Station undefeated. The Wolves found themselves in a dogfight battling the Eagles to the wire pulling out a 48-43 victory. “I remember playing this team last year, it was a tough game. We have a different looking team this  year, they’ve gotten better, but are still pretty much the same team.”

The  Lady Wolves were hot on defense with Sophomore Emma Hylek holding up the staggering three point defense. “I’m really happy with her performance tonight. I thought defensively we did a very good job”, said head coach Linda Eleftheri. Along with that, the team  combined for 17 defensive rebounds and 4 steals.

Senior  Kate Pfister led the team with 17 points, 15 of those from 3 point range. She also accounted for 2 steals. “We worked really well as a team, we didn’t force anything”, says Kate. Eleftheri commented on her team’s hot performance at home saying “We had a hot  hand. It was the first time we played in our own gym this season and I think that made a difference. We shoot on these everyday and today it looked like it.”

The  Lady Wolves take on Washington Township on November 30th at home, with it being Boone Grove’s homecoming game.
