Whitehall’s Emily MacArthur put up 18 points and 10 rebounds despite the Vikings’ 58-41 loss to Manistee on Wednesday.

Manistee jumped ahead early with a 17-9 first quarter lead and built a 33-19 lead at halftime.

Jenna Pesch also led Whitehall with 12 points including three 3-pointers. Janelle Uganski added five points and three assists while Christy Pladies had six rebounds.

“We struggled getting defensive stops and getting out of help side position to allow some easy scoring in the lane,” said Whitehall coach Rachel Kent whose team faces Oakridge and Mason County central next week in WMC action.
