Clinton’s “Big Three” prevented McFarland from celebrating an outright Rock Valley Conference title Monday evening.

Liz Kalk, Olivia Roehl and Addyson Ciochon combined for 45 points as the Cougars rallied from a six-point halftime deficit for a convincing 59-46 girls basketball win over the visiting Spartans.

Kalk finished with 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting, adding 10 rebounds and seven assists. Roehl had 15 points and nine rebounds, while Ciochon had 14 points and six rebounds.

Annalise DeMuth led McFarland with 16 points and seven rebounds.

Bolstered by an 18-1 run coming out of halftime, the Cougars (11-9, 8-8 RVC) outscored the Spartans 36-18 in the second half.

McFarland (13-7, 13-3 RVC) had already clinched a share of the league title but could have secured an outright title with a win.

Monday’s result benefited East Troy and Evansville. Both teams can still pull even with McFarland by winning out and having the Spartans lose both their remaining conference games.
