Olivia Pitrof's impressive streak continues.

The junior forward for the Horlick High School girls basketball team added another double-double to her season stats on Tuesday as she helped the Rebels to a 56-53 nonconference victory over The Prairie School at Horlick.

The undefeated Rebels (4-0) rode Pitrof's strong performance as she scored 26 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and had three steals.

"She had another dominating night and continues to improve each game," said Horlick coach Ambrial Sanders.

The Rebels also used a strong defensive effort as they forced 18 turnovers and nabbed 22 offensive rebounds.

"We were really tough on the glass tonight which allowed us to kind of control the game for sure," Sanders said.

The Hawks (1-2) had their chances, but sloppy ball handling and giving up too many second looks put them in a hole, said coach Alan Mills.

"We played well to start and were right there with them, but some late turnovers and too many offensive boards hurt us," Mills said.

RACINE LUTHERAN 56, CATHOLIC CENTRAL 27: The Crusaders used a stifling defense to win a Metro Classic Conference game in Burlington.

The Crusaders (5-0, 2-0 MCC) overcame a sluggish start, according to coach Steve Shaffer, and took over in the second half.

"We came out slow in the first half, but in the second half we really turned on the defense and forced them into a lot of turnovers," Shaffer said.

The Crusaders held the Lady Toppers scoreless for almost 10 minutes in the second half and cruised to the win.
