Senior basketball players like to create special moments they can keep with them the rest of their lives. On Saturday afternoon, Harrison senior Alle Salatin had one of those. With her grandmother in attendance for likely the last time this season, Salatin gave the entire family something to remember as she scored 13 points and pulled down a career high 16 rebounds in a 60-33 victory over Northwest.
“Alle always hustles out there, but I think she was a little inspired for this game,” said Harrison coach Stuart Scrivner who explained that Salatin’s grandmother was headed to Florida for the rest of the winter.
Salatin’s 16 rebounds are well short of April Lux’s school record of 22, but the 5’ 8” Salatin is not the prototype post player that the 6’ 1” Lux (Harrison Class of 2002) was.
The Ladycats dominated the game after a slow start. The Lady Knights took a 7-6 lead in the first quarter, but by halftime Harrison had built up an 18-point lead, 30-12.
“Northwest is improving,” said Scrivner. “I felt like we had to work for this.”
In addition to Salatin’s scoring, junior Alyssa Borgemenke came off the bench to score 11 points for the Ladycats. Nine players scored for Harrison in the game. Courtney Osborne had five steals and Erica Knollman had five assists for Harrison.
Harrison closes out the first half of the league schedule with a road game at Edgewood on Wednesday night. They face a rematch with Little Miami at home on Saturday afternoon. Harrison beat Little Miami in overtime in the second week of the season, 49-39.
With a 4-2 record in the Southwest Ohio Conference (SWOC), Harrison is in third place, just one game ahead of both Edgewood and Little Miami. The Ladycats trail Talawanda by two games and Wilmington by one in the SWOC standings.
