Private schools POW: Alexa Lienhard, Irish...
By Robert Przybylo
I guess I never actually elaborated on my point when I saw the same characteristics in the Bishop McGuinness boys and girls basketball teams.
The biggest thing they share is balance and the multiple options who can get the job done on any given night. For the boys, the dynamic quartet of Matt Christiansen, Jameel Whitney, Kevin Caruthers and Joe Edmonds can all score in bunches.
On the girls side, Lissy Fuller, Elyse Hight, Cara Pugh and Alexa Lienhard can all be the first name you see in a box score for Jennifer Frakes’ club.
This week I’m going with Lienhard as the Private schools Player of the Week. She was outstanding in the win at Heritage Hall as was the team. It just seems like this girls team is so focused on making state. It’s fun to see a team rise up to the occasion instead of becoming overwhelmed in the moment.
The Irish (both squads) need to win one game this week and both will punch their tickets to the state tournament.
The boys quartet, Irish, Basketball: Christiansen, Edmonds, Whitney and Caruthers were the top four scorers in both regional victories.
