A lack of experience and confidence led to a loss Friday night for the Marathon High Lady Fins basketball girls (1-3) at Palmer Trinity School.
The District 8-4A rival Falcons (3-2) ended the game 28 points ahead, 60-32.
“We missed several easy layups and uncontested shots,” coach Teresa Konrath said. “Experience and confidence is part of the performance and right now we’re lacking in both areas.”
Ranisha Charles controlled the defensive boards, she said. Sophomore Leta Ricart had 14 points, seven rebounds and three steals. Alyiah Headen had six points, three rebounds and one steal, while Ranisha Charles had six points, 11 rebounds and two steals.
“We were 14-65 from the field,” Konrath said, adding conditioning is “definitely a factor in the game.”
“We need to run more in practice,” she said.
