Johnson ties school record in BLHS girls’ 50-30 win against Lansing
Jamie Johnson tied a Basehor-Linwood school record on Tuesday in a 50-30 victory against Lansing.
Johnson scored 13 points, all in the first half, including two threes which gave her 39 on the season and a share of the record. The Bobcats used stifling defense to put the game out of reach in the first half. The Lions went 10:13 without a field goal, a span that started early in the first quarter and stretched into the middle of the second.
Lansing played it’s best quarter in the third, scoring 13 points, and it seemed as if it was shifting the momentum, but BLHS had an answer for every basket and increased its lead.
BLHS coach Jason Tatkenhorst wanted Johnson to get another three just to get the added stress of the record off of her shoulders, but it just wasn’t her night shooting the ball. He was able to go deep into his bench and play some players that play majority of their time with the junior varsity squad.
Victoria Smith and Amber Garver each scored eight points and Alex Gorman added seven, while Marriah Clayton and Courtney Payne both scored five off the bench.
