Stars end scrimmage season
with another loss, but Allen
encouraged by team growth
By Justin Sokeland
Bedford North Lawrence completed its June scrimmage schedule on Tuesday night, falling to Castle 53-47 at Evansville Central.
BNL finished the month with a 3-5 record, but the Stars played their last four games – all losses – without a full roster. McKenzie Messmore (bruised knee), Allie Crulo-Rood (back) and Jorie Allen (tweaked ankle) all missed the final three games as a precaution, and Kennedy Bunch played limited minutes against Castle with a sore knee.
Three of them are returning starters. That means many Stars, especially the freshmen on the 18-player roster, got dunked into the deep water of competition and were forced to swim or sink.
