Senior girls get fond sendoff on their night

Chickasaws pull away late for 53-36 win on Senior Parents Night

Isabel Leichtman is used to putting up big scoring numbers. 

Earlier in the year against Oelwein, she finished with 26 points, and that figure ties a pair of Crestwood players for the high total of the season in the Northeast Iowa Conference.

So while her 17 points in a New Hampton 53-36 win over Oelwein Friday would be considered a fine effort by most players, she was a bit subdued after the game.

“We had to stay patient,” said Leichtman, one of the five seniors that were honored before the game. “We did a good job working inside and out. Sometimes it was there and sometimes it wasn’t. We had to stay positive, work together and stay aggressive.”

Of course, Leichtman drew a lot of attention from the Huskies after her performance earlier against Oelwein.

“She was frustrated. They had a box and one on her,” explained coach Chad Pemble. “They were trying to isolate her and she did a good job with it. Actually, I’m glad they did it because we think our first round opponent, Union, may do something along those lines.”
