No. 5 Wildcats take care of Trojets

JANESVILLE – Fifth-ranked (Class 1A) Janesville got scoring contributions from 11 different players in a 72-15 romp over Northeast Hamilton in an Iowa Star Conference girls’ basketball game here last night.

Victoria Leyh was the only player in double figures with 12 points, but seven other Wildcats (2-1, 2-1 ISC) scored at least seven.

“They’re No. 5 for a reason and, fundamentally, we’ll still working on the basics,” NEH head coach Adam Vorrie said.

Janesville led 23-3 after one quarter and 45-7 at the intermission.

Kaylee Massman led NEH (0-4, 0-3 ISC) with five points.
