November 30th, 2021 by admin

Trojan LogoThe Atlantic girls basketball team will try to bounce back from a season opening loss to Denison tonight with a home meeting with Creston (1-1). The Trojans dropped that season opener a week ago 44-31. Atlantic struggled find consistent offense and returning leading scorer Jada Jensen finished with 4 points. Atlantic head coach Dan Vargason said they have to find a way to get her into the flow of the game.

Atlantic freshman Paytn Harter had a nice opening game with 12 points on 5-8 shooting. Coach Vargason hopes they can build on that solid start.

Creston comes in with a win over Des Moines Christian and a loss to Winterset. Doryn Paup will be a player to watch for the Panthers. She went 11-14 in the opener against Des Moines Christian and is averaging 22 points.

We’ll have the game on KJAN tonight with pregame at 7:15 p.m. and tip-off at 7:30 p.m. Chris Parks will have the call on AM 1220, FM 101.1, and online at KJAN.com
