Lindbergh girls fall 67-39 to Farmington

By STEPHEN GLOVER

The Lindbergh High School girls’ basketball team certainly felt the absences of three players in Saturday morning’s 67-39 loss against Farmington at Mineral Area College.

“Farmington has a really good team this year,” Lindbergh head coach Bill Thoele told the Call. “But we were also playing without Aimee Ubriaco and Kellie Oettle, who were taking the ACT. Val Ledbetter is also out due to a stress fracture.”

Although Aimee Ubriaco was not at the game, her younger sister Alicia Ubriaco led the Flyers with 12 points. The freshman guard is averaging 7.7 points and 2.0 rebounds a game this season.

“I think that Alicia is probably our best shooter,” Thoele said. “She came out on Saturday and had a nice little game.”

Sophomore forward Brittany Casey also was solid for the Flyers with nine points.

The sophomore forward is averaging 7.7 points and 6.0 rebounds a game this season.

“Brittany had a slow start, but came out with a little more intensity in the second half,” Thoele said. “She scored all of her nine points in the second half.”

Lindbergh was scheduled to face Cor Jesu in a non-conference game Tuesday night — after the Call went to press.

The Chargers (3-1) are coming off a 51-43 win against St. Charles.

Chargers Kelly Gorman and Rachel Henry tied for the team lead in points with 12 each.

“I think that we’re going to match up pretty good with them,” Thoele said. “We just have got to do a good job with our high percentage shots against them.”
