EVART\u00a0\u2014 Mara VanOrder continues to have a banner senior season for Evart\u2019s girls basketball team. It hit a high note on Thursday when VanOrder had 16 points, 15 rebounds and 11 steals in her team\u2019s 31-21 Highland Conference win over Marion and the Wildcats\u2019 first victory of the season. The previous week, the Wildcats lost narrowly to Lake City, which was undefeated at that time. \u201cI thought we played the best game we have all season,\u201d VanOrder said after that contest. \u00a0\u201cWe swung the ball from side to side and definitely executed what we\u2019ve done in practice.\u201d Lacking patience on offense and throwing up low percentage shots has been hurting the team at times. VanOrder has been averaging double figures in points and rebounds. \u201cI think the girls on my team have really been helping me out to get open,\u201d she said. \u201cThey\u2019ve been helping me get my shots off.\u201d It\u2019s important, VanOrder said, in having the \u201cmental process in believing we can win.\u201d VanOrder wants to work on her free throws and be more consistent, especially since she\u2019s been visiting the line extensively. Evart was home with Pine River on Tuesday and plays at McBain on Friday.
