Elcho girls move to 4-0 as Slowik surpasses 1,000
space
Make it four straight wins for the Elcho Hornets girls basketball team.

Hosting a Goodman-Pembine team decimated by injuries and low numbers Thursday night, the Lady Hornets took care of business, holding the Patriots to just a single free throw in the second half in a 52-7 win.

The outcome may not have been the highlight of the night however, as Elcho senior Katie Slowik surpassed the 1,000 career point mark, hitting back-to-back threes in the first half to eclipse the milestone in front of the home crowd.

Play was stopped when Slowik hit 1,000, as she was recognized and presented with the game ball. She entered the night just five points short of 1,000.

Slowik led Elcho on the night with 21 points, 15 of those coming on three-point baskets.

The senior will join her older sister Jessica on the basketball court at UW-Stevens Point next season.

The Hornets got out to a blistering start from the field, shooting at a 44 percent rate for the first half, as they took a 37-6 lead to the break.

Things cooled off in the second half, and Elcho did have some struggles at the free throw line, but things were well in hand by that point.

“Goodman-Pembine worked very hard and gave great effort despite injuries and numbers,” head coach Michelle Kincaid said. “Everyone contributed for us on the win either with points, rebounds, steals or assists.”

Following Slowik in scoring was Erica Manka, who had some nice back-door finishes to total eight points on the night, Ellie Asbach recorded seven points, Lexi Ernst had six, Lilly Reinke and Roxanne Russell had four each, with Emily Moore contributing two.

Asbach was the Hornets' leading rebounder on the night with eight boards, while Slowik, Reinke and Ernst grabbed four each. Manka, Russell and Anna Schilling all had two rebounds and freshman Grace Brunner got in the action with a rebound.

Reynolds and Manka led in assists with three each.

The game was also the Northern Lakes Conference opener for both teams, while Elcho improved to 4-0, the Patriots dropped to 0-3.

Next up for Elcho is a return to non-conference play on Tuesday, when the Hornets host Abbotsford.
