State girls' basketball: No. 2 Newell-Fonda tops Marquette in Class 1-A semis

By

Renee Maneman poured in a game-high 21 points and hit five 3-pointers to lead Newell-Fonda to a 69-52 Class 1-A semifinal-round win Wednesday night over Bellevue Marquette.
The second-ranked Mustangs (24-2) advanced to the state championship for the fourth time. The school took second in 1997, 2000 and 2008.
The team traveled to Des Moines while waiting for the semifinal’s 8:30 p.m. start.
“On the bus, we just talked and listened to our music,” Maneman said. “We didn’t want to sleep.”
Newell-Fonda led 37-26 at halftime.
Andrea Christensen added 16 points and Claudia Larsen had 10 for the winners.
Marquette finished 17-7. Kelsey Tebbe led her team with 17 points. Danielle Bender added 12.
Newell-Fonda will play for the championship at 4 p.m. Friday against either top-ranked Central Lyon or No. 5 Burlington Notre Dame, which meet in the other semifinal game at 10 a.m. Thursday.
