Maharishi School Varsity Teams Lose to Central Lee
Central Lee defeated the Maharishi School varsity boys basketball team 69-45 before a packed gym in Donnellson, wresting the Western Division title of the SEI Superconference from the Pioneers.

The Golden Hawks guaranteed themselves at least a share of the division title, while Maharishi School will finish either in a tie for second place or in third place. Central Lee also avenged an 83-58 thrashing at the hands of the Pioneers just a month ago.

The visitors jumped out to a 12-5 lead behind seven points from Zach Silverman and five points from David Dannemann. But after a Central
Lee timeout, the lead soon turned into a 15-14 deficit. Maharishi School trailed 39-27 when Silverman hit a 3-pointer at the end of the half.

The gap narrowed to eight points in the third quarter, but the Pioneers could get no closer. Dannemann missed most of the second half with foul trouble. and fouled out with more than five minutes to go. Silverman fouled out with more than three minutes left and the Pioneers trailing 59-43.

Zach had 18 points and David 9 points, but each only two in the second half. Noah Loin and Michael Hauptman had 6 points apiece, Willy Kern added 4, and Chris Lynch had 2. But the hot shooting in the earlier win against Central Lee was mostly absent, as many shots just wouldn't go in the basket. And the Hawks benefited from their own hot shooting, as a spate of three-pointers helped them build their first-half lead and free-throw accuracy helped them pull away in the second half.

The varsity girls gave the division champion Central Lee girls a strong challenge with a gritty defensive performance before dropping a 53-42 decision. The Pioneers trailed only 28-27 in the third quarter and stayed within 5-6 points for most of the game. Amellia Schuldt led with 15 points. Jodi Dey had 10 before leaving with a sprained ankle in the fourth quarter. Taylor Ross had 6 points, Anna Tarnoff 5, Anna Shook 4, and Divindy Grant 2.

The girls have concluded their regular season with 3-9 record in division play and a 6-14 record overall. They begin the district tournament with a contest against Cardinal, whom they defeated three times this season. The game is at 7:00 p.m. at the Field House on Monday, February 11.

The boys next game is at home against Northern Division champion Iowa Mennonite (15-3). They defeated IMS in Kalona last year in a 52-51 thriller and expect another exciting contest. It will probably begin around 7:30 p.m. following the junior varsity game at 6:00 p.m.
