Wahl’s career day carries Pats past ranked foe

From Herald Staff Reports

Red-hot shooting isn’t anything new to Patriot senior Abby Wahl — especially against South Elizabeth.

Wahl’s 36 point outing in Saturday’s 66-57 win for Heritage Hills over the Class 1A No. 6 Rebels surpassed her old career-high of 35 that she scored in last year’s 72-69 overtime loss to South Elizabeth.

The Patriots (2-0) started hot outscoring the Rebels by nine points in the first quarter and were able to maintain that steady pace throughout the rest of the game following Wahl’s shooting touch and 12 rebounds as well.

Heritage Hills shot 49 percent from the field and a solid 80 percent from the free throw line including Wahl making a total of 11 shots from the line.

The Pats also received solid play from forward Rebekah Gordon who finished with 10 points and center Kate Kaetzel who had five points and five rebounds.

Other stat leaders for the Patriots were Kerragan Mulzer and Claire Heckel who finished with a team-high four assists and Gordon who led the Pats with two blocks.

South Central (2-1) finished with three players in double-digit scoring — Ally Davis had 21 points, Lexie Knear scored 16 points and Jordan Renn added 13.

Heritage Hills will make two trips to Evansville this week as they travel to face Evansville North on Tuesday and Evansville Harrison on Thursday.

The rest of the weekend’s best in local prep sports.
