SHARE Kym, Mayer key Libertyville attack

November was a tough month for the Libertyville girls basketball team.

Breaking in three new starters, the Wildcats struggled, going 1-5. As the calendar turned to December, so have the Wildcats’ fortunes. After a 49-25 win over Lake Forest on Saturday, Libertyville has now won three of its last four games.

“Everybody is coming along great,” senior guard Olivia Mayer said, who scored 11 points. “They are eager to learn, eager to listen. They are not hard to lead. Everyone is fitting in.”

Libertyville (4-7, 3-1) jumped out early on the Scouts and were never threatened. A 25-15 halftime lead swelled to 31-17 when sophomore Mary Wilterdink launched a three-point shot with 1:30 left in the third.

The Wildcats held the Scouts without a basket in the third quarter. When Lake Forest junior Annie Keller scored to make it 38-19 with 5:50 left in the game, it was the Scouts first basket in over 12 minutes.

Libertyville outscored Lake Forest 24-10 in the second half.

“At first we were doing too many long passes. Once we started moving the ball faster and getting in the paint, everything started to work,” Mayer said.

Lake Forest (2-9, 0-5) had 22 turnovers through three quarters. Keller led the Scouts with 10 points.

“I know we can play better. I’ve seen us play better,” Lake Forest coach Kyle Wilhelm said. “We had some decent looks that didn’t drop. We did not take care of the basketball.”

Senior Dana Kym led a balanced Wildcats attack with 12 points.
