The NRHEG girls’ basketball team is picking up steam at the right time.

Despite a loss to Medford on Friday, the Panthers came into Tuesday’s tilt with Waseca winners of four of five.

NRHEG made it winners five of six with a 74-59 win over the Bluejays.

“(Rachel) Collins lit it up for us tonight,” NRHEG coach Onika Peterson said.

Collins led the Panthers with 19 points and was one of four players to reach double-digits in that column. Betsy Schoenrock showed up too, posting 18 points and 16 rebounds. Maddie Wagner finished with 16 points and Kayla Camerer had 10 points.

Marnie Wagner didn’t score in double figures, but she filled the stat sheet — seven rebounds, seven assists, six points and three steals.

NRHEG moves to 14-5 and 9-0 in the Gopher Conference.

It will play in Triton on Thursday.
