Tuesday night Van Buren traveled to Fort Madison for a girls’/boys’ Southeast Iowa Super Conference doubleheader with Holy Trinity Catholic, and got a 45-32 victory in the opening game.

Warriors fans who made the roadtrip were treated to a show as sophomore standout Taryn Scheuermann recorded her third career triple double in the win and the 12th for any player under Head Coach Matt Zietler.

“Holy Trinity is vastly improved.” said Coach Zietler. “But when you don’t front Taryn, she’s going to score and they didn’t front her at all. As far as the blocks and rebounds goes, that’s just her working hard.”

The Warriors led 19-11 after one period, but the Crusaders cut their deficit to just 21-17 at the half. Van Buren extended their advantage to 31-24 going into the final eight minutes before pulling away for the 13 point victory.

Coach Zietler also mentioned that it was the best game of the young careers of sophomore twins Chloe and Grave Davidson. He commended them on their “outstanding” play as Chloe scored four points, had 13 rebounds, three assists and four steals while her sister added five rebounds, two assists and a block.

The Warriors are now 9-3 with a home game Friday night versus 1-11 New London.



The Panthers had Tuesday night off, but did win 41-25 Jan. 5 against 7-6 Louisa-Muscatine.

The Panthers were led by seniors Maci Gambell who had 13 points and 10 rebounds and Faith Oostra who added 10 points of her own. Maci’s cousin, junior Haley, had eight points and rebounds of her own in the 11th win for Pekin. The 11-1 squad will now host the only team to best the Panthers so far this year, 13-1 Mediapolis Friday at 6 p.m.



The Comets have had a full week to gameplan for 12-1 Central Lee, after losing 75-30 to West Burlington Jan. 5.

The Comets had big games from freshman Alexia McClure who had 10 points and five rebounds, and sophomore Maddie Cloke who added 12 points and five boards.
