INSIDE THE PRESS BOX: Girls Basketball
Julia Martinez and Lilly Wehman ended up with record-breaking seasons for Loyola Academy this winter.
Martinez, an all-GCAC point guard, broke the school’s single-season assists record with 196 (6.8 per game).
The sophomore, a two-year starter, just missed breaking the single-season steals record with 123 — finishing 15 shy of the record. However, her steals per game average (4.2) is a record.
In helping the Ramblers to 21 wins (21-11) and a regional championship, Martinez averaged 10.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
Wehman, who joined Martinez on the all-GCAC team, set LA’s single-season blocks record this winter with 125. Her 3.9 blocks per game also is a school record.
The junior forward, who averaged 6.9 points per game, also pulled down 238 rebounds, which is the fourth best single-season total at the school.
The team’s other stat leaders included senior forward Clare Nelson (9.3 points, 3.5 rebounds), senior guard Madison Kane (7.5 points, 3.9 rebounds) and junior guard Erin Dillon (5.8 points).
