Grace Berger ensured that the Sacred Heart girls basketball team remained undefeated in the new year.
The Indiana commit came one rebound away from recording a double-double in an all-around strong offensive and defensive performance as the Valkyries routed Notre Dame Academy, 60-37 Thursday on the road. Berger scored 20 points on 10 of 13 shooting and grabbed nine rebounds, three of them on the offensive glass. The Junior guard also had five assists, two blocked shots and four steals.
Berger was the only Valkyrie to score in double figures but four Valkyries finished with eight points; Erin Toller, Ashlee Harris, Natalie Fichter and Kia Sivils.
The Valkyries forced the Pandas into 23 turnovers, which the visitors turned into 26 points. The Pandas only had three points off of Sacred Heart turnovers.
