Women of Troy dominate Dubuque Senior, 69-47

North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– The travel conditions were treacherous, and so were the West High Women of Troy as they notched their fourth victory of the season Friday, Jan. 10, at home against the Rams of Dubuque Senior.
A 17-point first quarter was followed by a 20-point effort to give West a 37-20 lead, which was extended to 55-27 going into the fourth period.
Mikaela Morgan was on fire with 25 points and six steals to lead the Women of Troy while Jessie Harder added 14 and Grace Tafolla put in 11 points. Regan Steigleder, a freshman, put up 10 points in the fray. The win improved West’s record to 4-6 ahead of a pair of road trips to Dubuque Hempstead on Tuesday (Jan. 14) and Cedar Rapids Jefferson on Friday (Jan. 17). The Rams’ winless streak continued as they dropped to 1-9, not having won since their season opener in November against Pleasant Valley.
Looking at the fifth weekly rankings for Class 5A as posted by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, released on Wednesday, Jan. 8, City High continued in the number one spot with a 12-0 record. West Des Moines Valley, Waterloo West, West Des Moines Dowling Catholic and Waukee rounded out the top five teams in the state.
