Alder girls pick up victory
By Chris Miles
There haven’t been too many nights this season where the Jonathan Alder girls basketball team played a game and walked away with smiles afterward.
However one of those nights happened to be Saturday, as the team scored a rewarding 65-48 victory over visiting Marion Pleasant.
Ashley Day scored a game-high 17 points, Lacy Purdum finished with 15 and Alexis Milesky added nine of her own in what was just the Lady Pioneers fifth win of the season.
Alder (5-11) jumped out to a 24-6 advantage after the first quarter and coasted from there.
The win came one night after a disappointing 79-47 loss against North Union. The team will play host to Hilliard Bradley Saturday.

The Flames (13-5) continued their march toward the posteason with a convincing home victory Saturday.
“It was a good overall game for us,” coach Rod Troyer said.
The team’s three-pronged scoring attack was led by Bridget Troyer’s 19 points. Annelise Rohrer added 16 and Ashley Gingerich chipped in 12 more.
The team will get a break from playing until Saturday when they will host Upper Scioto Valey Saturday.
“It should be a very good game,” Troyer said.
The Red Raiders (4-13, 0-11) dropped another SCOL road game Saturday.
The team will give it another shot Wednesday when it travels to McClain.

The Roughriders (11-3) easily won this MSL Cardinal clash Saturday.
Kyle Rollins (16), Seth Casto (14), Logan Stepp (11) and Ryan Love (10) all scored in double figures in the win.
The team also picked up a 86-59 win over Grove City Christian Friday.
