AE girls get seventh win in another lopsided victory
WHITTEMORE — The Arenac Eastern girls basketball team cruised to its seventh victory on the season with its 61-15 win over Oscoda in the Whittemore-Prescott Holiday Tournament on Dec. 22.
“We were about average,” said AE head coach Butch Beckham. “We didn’t light the room on fire, but we tightened our defense up in the second half.”
Beckham said a lot of underclassmen played with the varsity and got some good game experience. He said sophomore Ashley Navarre stood out in the game.
Brianna Dery led the Eagles with 12 and Chelsea Dery added 10.
The Eagles play the Whittemore-Prescott Cardinals on Dec. 23 at Whittemore-Prescott.
Beckham said he expects tomorrow’s matchup to be a good one for the Eagles. He said W-P sophomore Emily Forton is a good player the Eagles would have to watch for.
“We just gotta play hard,” he said.
AE plays host Whittemore-Prescott on Dec. 23 at 4:00 p.m.
The Owls will play AGS at 1:00 p.m.
