MOKANE–Led by the senior tandem of Karinne Lane and Jamie Gleeson, the Hermann girls won the championship of the South Callaway basketball tournament Saturday night, defeating North Callaway of Auxvasse, 47-20.
It was the fourth straight year the Lady Bearcats have won the South Callaway title, and fifth time in the last six years Hermann’s girls have claimed the tourney crown.
Gleeson and Lane were both named to the all-tournament first team, with Gleeson being awarded MVP honors. This was the first year Gleeson was selected to the all-tourney team after being a key player in Hermann’s previous titles at South Callaway. As a sophomore, she scored 27 points and pulled down 17 rebounds in the championship game, when Hermann defeated undefeated and No. 1 state ranked Harrisburg, yet was left off the all-tournament teams.
