Brooke Wolterstorff scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Western Christian past Lawton-Bronson 75-58 on Friday night for its second consecutive Iowa Class 2A girls championship.
Top-ranked Western Christian (26-1) led from the start and built a 16-point lead in the third quarter before holding off a courageous comeback by the second-ranked Eagles (26-2). Lawton-Bronson played the second half without star Josie Kopal, had two players foul out and lost two others briefly after they collided with each other.
The Wolfpack finally put it away by running off 13 straight points after the fourth-quarter collision took the steam out of Lawton-Bronson's rally.
Kopal had 17 points and six rebounds when she smacked her head against the shoulder of a Western Christian player in a scramble for the ball late in the first half. She was helped off the floor and watched the second half from the bench.
