No. 5 Avon proved to be too much for Mitchell Christian on Tuesday.

The Pirates coasted past the Golden Eagles 58-15 in a girls basketball contest at MCS Gym.

Avon (9-2) was led by Cheylee Nagel’s 22 points, five rebounds, four steals and four assists. Lauren Sees added 13 points, while Kacie Mudder contributed four points and seven rebounds for the ranked squad.

Avon jumped out to a 15-6 first quarter lead and held Mitchell Christian scoreless in the second quarter. The Pirates led 33-6 at halftime.

“We knew this was going to be a tough game and the girls fought hard,” Mitchell Christian coach Jackie Van Laecken said. “(Avon) Coach (Brad) Poppe does a great job with his team and they work hard on both ends of the court.”
