GRANTSBURG — The Lady Toppers hit the floor twice last week with games against the Grantsburg Pirates on November 27 and the Mondovi Buffaloes November 29.
The long drive to Grantsburg had the Lady Toppers starting out flat against the Pirates and struggling to get on top of things in the first half, but managed to pull away and take the win 48-35.
The trip to Mondovi was a tough one in the barn, said head coach Dean Fayerweather, but an early lead in the first half and composure allowed a second win of the week by a score of 57-52.
Glenwood City made their way back home for their first home game of the season against Durand last evening, December 4, and head back on the road December 7 to take on the Boyceville Bulldogs.
The drive to Grantsburg took a bit out of the Lady Toppers at first as they started the game out flat and down 10-1 with eight minutes left in the half, but Glenwood pulled together and took the win from the pirates by a score of 48-35.
“We were finally able to get some balls to drop in the basket and went ahead at halftime,” stated coach Fayerweather.
Delaney Quinn was quiet during the first half hitting the net for a single double against Grantsburg, during the second half Quinn stepped up her game and hit the boards for three doubles and another triple giving her 12 points overall.
Alexys Curvello and Hannah Strehlo finished the game with eight points a piece, Curvello had two doubles and a single triple and Strehlo was four for six from the foul line and hit the boards for two doubles.
“We came out pressing in the second half and that helped us pull away,” Fayerweather explained. “We did not play to our level at all but did not quit fighting which helped pull out the win.”
Delanie Fayerweather tacked on seven points overall off of a triple, a double and two for two from the foul line.
“It was nice to see five players contribute like we did,” coach Fayerweather said.

“We came out with guns firing and took control with a nice 14 point lead at half time,” Fayerweather said. “I knew coach Kaufman would adjust at half so I was worried about being flat in the second half.”
