COLUMBIA — The Rock Bridge girl’s basketball team blew out visiting Mexico 55-12 Thursday night.
Junior Katherine Harry led the Bruins with 16 points, and senior Claire Schaeperkoetter added nine.
After a slow start, the Bruins built their lead with a swarming defense.
“It took us a quarter to get going,” Bruins coach Jill Nagel said. “We needed to get more ball pressure and get our traps going.”
At the beginning of the season, the team set a goal to hold its opponents under 40 points in each game. However, that goal changed against Mexico.
“The kids wanted to keep the game under 10, and so that was our focus,” Nagel said. “It was never about offensively how many points we are going to score or what the point difference is going to be.”
