McLouth girls dismantle Bishop Seabury on road
Being on the top side of a rout is easy to handle.
The McLouth High girls basketball team ended its December schedule with a 47-15 win on Dec. 16 against Bishop Seabury in Lawrence.
The victory gives the team a boost going into the winter break
The Bulldogs now stand at 2-3 on the season after winning the non-conference game in Lawrence.
The Bulldogs squeaked past Valley Falls for their first win of the season in the Delaware Valley League Preseason Tournament, but erupted against the Seahawks in a nonleague game.
In the Bulldogs' three defeats, they've lost on average by 25 points.
But after opening with a 15-2 lead after the first quarter in the Seabury game, that wouldn't be the case again.
Leigh Anna Thompson led the Bulldogs with 10 points as nine other Bulldogs also scored.
Taylor Renfro pitched in eight, and Erica Meyer and Heaven Mills each had six in the win.
Like the boys team, the Bulldogs will spend some time after the break on a school bus.
McLouth's first three games in January are on the road -- Jan. 6 at Kansas City Christian, Jan. 9 at Highland and Jan. 16 at Troy.
The Bulldogs will be back home Jan. 20 against Mount St. Scholastica.
