Engle sets another record as Lady Eagles beat Bald Eagle 59-34

Tyrone turns in an impressive performance on Senior Night

Sophomore Kasey Engle making one of her eight 3’s

Breaking records is becoming an everyday thing for Tyrone sophomore Kasey Engle.  Literally.

Just one game after setting the all time single season record for three pointers, Engle etched her name in the record books once again by draining eight three pointers in a single game, breaking the old record of seven, which she already shared with three players.

The old record was held by Gendie Halverstein (twice in 1993), Rachel Miller (1999), Jordyn Swogger (2010) and Kasey Engle (2014).

Fueled by Engle’s game leading 28 points, the Golden Eagles beat the Bald Eagle Lady Eagles, for the second time this season, 59-34.

“We had stretches where we shot the ball really well,” said head coach Luke Rhoades, “When we shoot with confidence and rebound the ball we look like a solid team.”

Sophomore Kasey Engle hit two vital 3-pointers within the first three minutes which set the tone for the rest of the game.

“Bald Eagle tried to slow the game down which isn’t how we prefer playing, so we pressed them and got the pace going,” said Engle. “We worked the ball against their zone and got a bunch of open looks.”

Tyrone’s defense also worked hard throughout the game. Senior Lindsey Kemp had several key blocks in the beginning of the game and ended with nine points total.

“We came out excited because it was senior night and there was a decent amount of people there,” said Kemp. “We really wanted that win, and we accomplished that.”

Tyrone’s unstoppable offense and strong defense were able to end the first half with an 11 point lead.

“Amber Chamberlin helped to pump me up before the game and earlier that day, so that really helped my performance. But overall as a team, we came together and moved the ball well to get the win that we needed,” said senior Amber Reese, who got to start in honor of it being senior night.

Engle once again started off the quarter with back-to-back 3-pointers and Junior Finnley Christine connected with her second 3 of the night, to end the third quarter 50-21.

The lead was big enough for head coach Luke Rhoades to give his JV some playing time.

Junior Amber Gill was able to score four of the nine points scored in the fourth quarter.

The Lady Eagles are back at it Tuesday night at Penns Valley.
