The Solon Springs High School girls basketball team wrapped up playing three home games in five days.
The Eagles got off to a rough start Friday night with a 54-22 loss to Butternut/Glidden. Rachel Hanley led all scorers with 26 points as the Eagles defeated the Lakeview Academy Lions 54-44 Monday night.
Solon Springs also played Bayfield Tuesday night, defeating the Trollers 66-28 in Indianhead Conference play.
The Eagles (3-5, 2-4) were led in scoring again by Rachel Hanley with 26 points and Salann Gilbert added 12 points and 14 rebounds. "We played a much smoother game tonight than last night," coach Al Visger said after the game Tuesday night.
Sarah Hamlin led Lakeview Christian Academy (6-4) with 17 points, including four 3-pointers. Anna Broman had three 3s and 13 points.
Salann Gilbert added 14 points for Solon Springs, Chanda Deming and Lorin Larson had six points each and Alex Sickler chipped in with a bucket.
Butternut/Glidden jumped out to a 15-5 lead over the Eagles after the first quarter and held the Solon Springs girls to just two points in the second quarter for a 30-7 lead at halftime. The Eagle girls got their offense working a little bit better in the second half, but it was too much to catch up to Butternut/Glidden.
Leading the Eagles in scoring was Chanda Deming with six points, Salann Gilbert with five, Rachel Hanley with four, Lorin Larson with 3 and Ailien Bowker and Alex Sickler both chipped in two points apiece.
Butternut/Glidden was led by Jess Meier's 16 points. Chelsea Aicher and Devon Furtak added 12 apiece.
The Eagles are in action at 7 p.m. Friday at Drummond.
