The Lyons Township High School girls basketball team split four games at their own Thanksgiving tournament.
Led by top scorers Lily Courier and Elli Kosanovich, LTHS cruised past Lane Tech 65-45 and Morton 64-31. Courier scored 15 and 16 points against the Indians and Mustangs, respectively, while Kosanovich had 13 and 14 points in the victories.
In a 58-44 loss against Minooka, Clara Zubor led the Lions with 12 points, while Courier (11 points) and sophomore guard Lindsey Hahn (10 points) also reached double figures in scoring.
Wheaton North defeated LTHS 65-47 as Kelly Carlson scored 13 points for LTHS. Katelyn McManaman chipped in nine points for the Lions and Courier scored eight points.
Courier, a junior guard, and Carlson, a senior forward, made the all-tournament team.
“We are getting better every game as we work to find out identity as a team,” said LTHS coach Meghan Hutchens.
In her sixth year coaching in the LTHS girls basketball program, Hutchens is a first-year varsity head coach this season. Hutchens, who played at Riverside-Brookfield High School, UIC and overseas professionally, has replaced Paul Krick. He guided the Lions to an 18-10 record last season.
