NYM Girls Basketball: Rutten passes 2,000 points in win over Park Chhristian

John George

Hannah Rutten needed just 19 points to pass the 2,000 point milestone Thursday night against Park Christian. The senior post finished the game with 24 in front of the home crowd at the Mills Sports Center as the Lady Eagles picked up a 73-47 win.

Rutten also had 13 rebounds, five steals and four assists. She had 17 of her points in the first half as the Eagles built a 44-24 lead.

Alicia Boe scored 14 of her 22 points in the second half to go with six assists and four steals. Sam Welter finished with six points, seven boards, four assists and three blocked shots.

Mills has won their last two games against the Falcons (2-15).

On Feb. 12, NY Mills will make-up their snowed out game at Perham.

The Jackets have won five in a row over Mills. The Eagles last win in the series was a 44-40 overtime victory in December, 2003.

Due to the Eagle wrestlers garnering a top-two seed in the Section 6A team playoffs (and thus hosting a first round meet on Feb. 16), the girls basketball game against Menahga on Feb. 16 has been moved to Thursday, Feb. 18.

The 'C' squad game will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by the J.V. and varsity, respectively.

It will be the final regular season home game for the Lady Eagles. The Eagles beat Menahga on Jan. 14, 76-37, for their fourth straight win over the Braves.
