Assumption holds off Auburndale girls basketball

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Wisconsin Rapids Assumption raced out to a big lead by halftime and held on to beat Auburndale 62-50 in a Marawood Conference South Division girls basketball game Monday night at Assumption High School.

Assumption, playing in its season and conference opener, pulled out to a 30-13 lead by halftime with a strong defensive performance.

Auburndale (1-2, 0-2 Marawood South) managed to get its offense rolling in the second half, but it was too late to overcome the 17-point deficit.

Auburndale left a bunch of points at the free throw line, making just 19 of 36, as Assumption committed a whopping 28 fouls.

Natalie Aue had 17 points and Paityn Hamus added 10 for the Apaches.
