The 2017-18 season came to an end for the Lebanon girls’ basketball team on Monday night as the Lady ‘Jackets fell to Camdenton in the semifinal round of the Missouri Class 5 District 10 tournament at Willard High School, 76-57.

Camdenton came out shooting well and built an early lead in the first quarter to take a 26-15 lead. The Lakers knocked down four 3-pointers in the first quarter.

Lebanon (10-17) fought back and came out in the second quarter and went on a 9-0 run in the first two minutes to cut the lead to two points.

With just less than a minute to play before halftime, Lebanon trailed by just two points, but two three-point makes by Nicole Rezebek gave the Lakers an eight-point lead heading into the locker room.

At the half, Lebanon had 14 turnovers, and head coach Brendan Kelley said ball control was an issue he discussed with his team.

“The main thing I talked to the girls about was effort,” Kelley said about the halftime talk. “I told them before the game started that extraordinary accomplishments take extraordinary effort. If we were going to go out and win it was going to take a lot of effort and energy.

“I think we played with a lot of heart, but Camdenton’s pressure speeds you up and it makes you make decisions you wouldn’t ordinarily make just because you know that trap is coming.”
