SHARE Guerin experiences déjà vu in win over Walther Christian

Guerin 50, Walther Christian 24


Guerin’s 50-24 Suburban Christian Gold win over Walther Christian at home on Saturday was almost a carbon copy of the Gators’ 44-25 victory over the Broncos on Dec. 7. Both contests saw Guerin start the game with a big run for a double-digit lead and both featured Becky Bartnicki dominating down low en route to recording a double-double.


The Gators (7-12, 2-6) scored the first 15 points of the game and led 35-13 at the half as Walther Christian (5-15, 0-8) was simply outmatched.


Bartnicki, a 6-foot senior, finished the game with 14 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks as she shot 7-for-10 from the floor.


Guerin shot 22-for-52 from the floor, while the Broncos had a rough night, going 8-for-40. Senior Dana Turner led Walther Christian with 12 points and senior Cree Jones chipped in six points. Freshman Angelica Rivers contributed 11 points for the Gators, while senior Mary Jo Toohey added eight points.


“It’s good that we started strong but we have to keep our energy up in the second half to stay up. I just tried to go out hard, play strong and keep going.” — Bartnicki
