SPORTSDESK - The SPASH Panthers began their 2019-20 season at home with an 83-59 loss to DeForest. DeForest had just seen their football team win a state championship on Friday, defeating Menasha 8-7. The Norskies perhaps used the excitement of seeing their classmates raise the gold ball a day prior, got off to a fast 40-21 halftime start and cruised from there.

SPASH got a game leading 23 points from senior standout, Leah Earnest, who also claimed 14 rebounds and two assists. Earnest was joined in double digit points with 11 from Zoe Fink. DeForest had three double digit point scorers, led by Maggie Trauysch with 21.

Head Coach Kraig Terpstra said there's room to grow after game one, “Typical first game, we have a lot to work on. DeForest shot the ball very well.”

Next up for SPASH Milwaukee Pius at the Brookfield Central Shootout on Saturday, November 30 at 3:15pm.
