Lane Tech Vs. Taft

         

Taft Beats Lane In A Scrappy Battle 

Chicago, IL
 
 

LANE TECH HS- Senior night did not go the way the Lane Tech girls varsity team imagined. Taft jumped out to an early lead and continued to build on that lead for most of the game. Lane fell short in one of their last games of the season ultimately losing 66-46. 


 

Taft’s tenacious defense and ability to go on runs certainly did not help the Lane effort. During the early part of the game Lane was able to keep it close with the help of their seniors, but as the game continued the Eagles were too much to handle. The leading scorers were Krystyna Elleas with 27 points for Taft and Anastasia Lamperis with 24 points for Lane. One of the most memorable moments of the game was when Lane senior Eily Quinn checked into the game. Quinn, who had just recently torn her ACL in the previous game, came into the game and immediately knocked down a shot. Powerful moment for a senior playing in her last high school game.


 

With the loss Lane moves to 5-3 on the year and fifth in the conference, Lane looks to finish their season strong with a win over Jones College Prep on March 18. Taft is sitting at 5-2 overall and currently in third place in the conference. They too look to finish their season on a good note and take on Jones as well on March 16.
