The Spectrum girls picked up their fourth straight win 53-46 over Minneapolis Edison at home Monday evening.

Senior guard Rachel Stevenson led with 24 points, cashing 9-of-10 at the line and two 3-pointers. Sophomore center Noelle Diekman scored 11. Kassidi Robbins hit a pair of 3-pointers.

“Tonight we got a little sloppy, but I think we have been playing pretty well lately,” said coach Lenny Sedlock. “Our win over St. Croix Prep (52-42 on Wednesday) was the best game we’ve played since the program started three years ago.”

Senior center Tatyana Owens scored 15 points for Edison (3-13).

The Sting (10-5) have a busy week, as this was the first of four games in six days. They will host St. Paul Harding on Wednesday, play at Minneapolis Henry on Friday and host Hope Academy on Saturday.

Sting scoring — Rachel Stevenson 21, Noelle Diekman 12, Brynn Bozich 6, Kassidi Robbins 6, Rachel Goldsmith 4, Katelynn Bozich 2, Marcie Burns 2
