Basketball: Thunder girls pilfer Rocori 54-45

The Zimmerman girls haven’t enjoyed a good shooting game yet but the Thunder are still 3-1 after holding off the Rocori Sparans 54-45 on Tuesday evening in Cold Spring.

The Thunder made 26 steals, led by Lexi Funaro, who swiped the ball 7 times while scoring 18 points.

“We keep shooting in the 30 to 35 percent range,” said coach Lance Dalbey. “But we’ve beenĀ  forcing a lot of turnovers.”

Kaitlyn Mason added 11 points and Brooke Borchardt 10. Borchardt led with 6 rebounds.

Rocori fell to 0-3 for the year.

Zimmerman will host Albany on Thursday.
