Ruff's 25 lead OHS to victory


Erica Prindle had 10 points for Class AA Kingston.

Madison Miller finished with eight rebounds and five steals for the Yellowjackets (10-1), who’ll host Norwich on Wednesday in a key Southern Tier Athletic Conference game.

OHS beat the Purple Tornado by seven points in the teams’ first meeting this season.

“We have to defend the three-point line,” Miller said of Wednesday’s game. “They have four kids who can hit the three. I think we’re more athletic and with our defense, we can bother them a bit. They’re every bit our equal. I think they’re our toughest Section Four Class B opponent.”

Ruff recently passed Sienna Wisse for second place on OHS’ scoring list. Ruff has scored 1,249 points over four seasons in an OHS uniform. Wisse, Ruff’s former teammate, graduated in 2011 with 1,217 points. Krissy Zeh is the Yellowjackets’ all-time leading scorer with 1,698 points.

Ruff has 1,752 all-time points as a varsity player, including two seasons with Andes.

Wisse is averaging 7.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in her junior season at Messiah College.

Laurens 38, Schenevus 32

Charlotte Lee, Lindsay Laing, Claire Fraser and Taylor Kessler combined to go 10-for-12 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter of Laurens’ Tri-Valley League victory at home.

The Leopards outscored Schenevus, 17-10, over the final eight minutes.

“We went to a man-to-man press about three minutes into the quarter and the next thing we knew, we were up nine,” Laurens coach Dean Marble said. “They had a little trouble with it.”

Lee had 10 points, one more than Kessler. Laing contributed five points and 11 rebounds, marking the fourth time in five games she’s grabbed at least 10 rebounds.

As for his team’s defense, Marble said: “We played with a lot of energy. Our defense away from the ball was outstanding. That’s the best defensive game we’ve had this year.”
