Girls Basketball was out in full force for a Monday night on the network. With a total of 16 matchups, including over half a dozen conference battles, filling the YSN streams! One of those conference matchups occurred in Atwater, or better known as Atsnow this time of the year, when The Vikings welcomed in The Trojans of Sebring. 

Waterloo, taking a different approach in the non-conference slate at the beginning of the season, opted to schedule three tough games right out of the gate. Despite being competitive, The Vikings dropped those three contests; however, it was all to keep their sights set on The Mahoning Valley Athletics Conferences (MVAC) Scarlet Division and defending their crown. 

Following the losses to start the season, The Vikings have quickly bounced back as winners of five straight, including three consecutive conference matchups heading into Monday night. On the other side, The Trojans are looking to get back to the rich basketball tradition that is known at Sebring. Through some growing pains, Head Coach Anthony Agresta plans to be the guy to lead them there. 

With the mismatch, The Vikings wasted little time in jumping ahead early, as a scoring outburst put Waterloo ahead 29-4 after the first quarter and they never looked back. Scoring another 29 points in the second quarter for a total of 58 first half points. Finishing with 82 points overall, it was the largest offensive output from The Vikes this season. 

Abby Mazur had a night that was, quite simply, magical! As the senior was as dangerous as can be from three-point-territory, Mazur nailed down a program record-breaking total of eleven shots from distance! Finishing with 35 total points, Mazur’s major night helped lead The Vikes to victory while leaving a memory for the senior scrapbook that will last forever! 

Both teams look to get back to action this week! Waterloo (5-3) will stay home to host The Akron Firestone Falcons (0-3). For Sebring (0-6) they will look to change their luck against Leetonia (0-7) as The Bears will entertain them, also on Thursday.
