Plainfield had nine players score on the night. Sophia Wilson led Plainfield with eight, Mackenzie Jeffries tallied seven and Betsy Gillenwater and Kyndall Spears each dropped in six. Gillenwater led Plainfield with nine rebounds.
Cupp offered no excuses in defeat, however, the loss of starter Brooke Peters whose right foot was in a boot, did not help any. Peters sustained the injury a couple of games back and should be back for the postseason.
“It makes it tough to get rhythm when you make changes at the end of the year,” he said. “I am making a rotation with seven kids and it is tough trying to get them to gel so late in the year.”
Shelle Daniels led all scorers with 10 for the Orioles and Rachel Griffin totaled six points while pulling down eight rebounds.
For the Quakers, it was also senior night and their last home game of the season. Graduating for Plainfield are Jeffries, Gillenwater, Katie Robertson and DeAnn Cowell.
“Mackenzie and Betsy have been here since they were little kids and I’ve watched them grow up and so forth,” Benge said. “DeAnn and Katie moved in when they were in high school and it’s a different perspective for them. Cowell has played a lot for us and Katie endured sitting last year and that showed a lot of commitment on her part. I truly appreciate all of the effort they’ve put in.”
Avon plays its last game Jan. 31 at Hamilton Southeastern while Plainfield has two more contests, Jan. 25 at Decatur central and Jan. 29 at Northview.
