OSWEGO – The Rosary girls basketball team is having a rough go of it at the Oswego Holiday tournament.
The Royals continued their struggles at the event on Wednesday, when they were blasted by the host Panthers, 69-29.
The Royals lost a pair of starters – Megan Conlin (ACL tear) and Mary Kate Bakala (stress fracture) – just before the tournament started.
“It’s already a hard tournament for us but missing two starters for our team, it makes it even more tough, to say the least,” Rosary coach Jessie Wilcox said.
The Royals are 0-3 in the tournament, and will face another Class 4A opponent on Saturday in Naperville Central.
“It’s great to go against good competition,” said Wilcox, whose team is 5-7 overall. “Hopefully when we do go against our own level in our own conference it’ll help us down the line, but right now this is a really tough tournament.”
Rachel Choice scored eight points to lead Rosary.
Elsewhere in Oswego tournament play, Batavia saw its seven-game winning streak snapped with a 64-45 loss to Marian Catholic.
Liza Fruendt, Erin Bayram and Hannah Frazier combined to score 39 of the Bulldogs’ 45 points. Batavia (9-2) will play Rich South on Saturday in the tournament’s second-place crossover game.
Geneva wins triangular: At Lombard, Geneva (135.15) won a triangular meet, defeating Glenbard South (129.9) and Glenbard East (117.1).
The Vikings’ Dominique Brognia was the all-around winner with a 36.15 score. Brognia was first on the beam (9.35) and floor exercise (9.45) while teammate Megan Beitzel was second in the all-around (34.55).
