CEDAR RAPIDS- Even before the 2009-2010 season started, Anamosa girls basketball coach Jack Leighty had an immense amount of respect for Central DeWitt. Even calling the Sabers the best team in the entire WaMaC.
...
"This had all the makings of being a great game and that's pretty much how it played out," said Leighty as his team battled with the Sabers all game long before succumbing to a narrow 48-43 loss, their first of the season. "We gave ourselves a chance there at the end and just couldn't make the plays to get over the top."
The game was tight from start-to-finish with neither team holding more than a six-point lead at any point.
"We may have been beaten in this particular game, but that doesn't mean DeWitt is a better team than we are," said Leighty.
...
"I was happy with the way we came out and competed," said Leighty. "We shot the ball very well in the first half (10-of-18 shooting) and we also did a decent job against their press too. What this game came down to was free throw shooting and we just didn't convert enough times and Central DeWitt did."
Through three frames the Raiders trailed just 32-30 and were staring at a 38-32 deficit with just 4:19 to play. "We had that sense of urgency there at the end and started making some plays," said Leighty.
...
"We needed DeWitt to miss free throws and they didn't help us out," said Leighty as the Sabers were a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe in the final 30 seconds.
...
"I'm not sure we know how good we can be yet," said Leighty.

ANAMOSA - Walking off the floor after a heart-stopping 54-52 triple-overtime loss hosting Western Dubuque Friday, January 8, Anamosa girls basketball coach Jack Leighty didn't lament the loss, but instead found the positive in what was one amazing basketball game between two very evenly matched clubs.
"These are the types of games that just make you better when it comes tournament time," said Leighty as his team fought hard for all 44 minutes. "Yes, we had our chances to close out this game and couldn't quite get it done, but I am not unhappy about this loss. I'm actually proud of the girls for the way they reacted to the situation. We played calm and composed basketball, but just didn't hit the big free throws when we needed them to close out this game."
Anamosa (8-2, 6-2) led 13-11 after one frame, 27-25 at the half and 33-32 entering the fourth quarter. "It was tight from start-to-finish," said Leighty.
...
"We needed a big play and Jackie got it for us," said Leighty.
...
"The kids played hard all night long," said Leighty.
...
"We learned a lot about ourselves as a team in this game," said Leighty.
...
"That was, by far, the best opening quarter we've had all season long," said Raider girls basketball coach Jack Leighty after his team poured in a whopping 24 points and held the visitors to a mere five in a wild first frame that saw everything go right for the hosts and little go right for the Hawks.
...
"We had a bit of a lull in the second quarter and West Delaware got back into the game," said Leighty. "But then we took over again in the third and built a 20+ point lead and just cruised home for the win."
After leading 24-5 after one phenomenal frame, the Raiders were out-scored 12-6 in the second stanza and led 30-17 at the half.
"We were never really too worried, but I don't like seeing us take the foot off the gas," said Leighty. "We had a chance to end this game in the second quarter and didn't do it, but we took care of business in the third."
The Raiders came out of the break and dominated once again going on a 19-6 spurt to take a 49-23 lead into the fourth and final frame.
"We had so many girls step up and play well," said Leighty.
...
Kayla and Jackie were doing their things too and it was god to get everyone into the game."
...
"We've been playing some of our best ball here lately and hopefully that continues," said Leighty. "We've got some big games ahead before we head into the regional tournament."
Anamosa hit the road for a WaMaC non-divisional contest at Williamsburg Friday, January 22, and against a very talented Raiders team, was handed a 37-29 defeat.
"We got off to a great start and held off several Williamsburg rallies to take a two-point lead into the fourth quarter, but couldn't hang on," said Leighty. "This was one of those very tough, physical WaMaC road contests and we just couldn't make the plays in the fourth quarter to come out of here with a win."
The visiting Raiders jumped out to a nice 7-0 lead early on in the opening frame and at the first horn led 9-5. The host Raiders battled back and out-scored Anamosa 10-6 in the second stanza and the two teams went into the halftime break in a 15-15 tie.
"You could tell this was going to be a game that went down to the wire," said Leighty.
...
"I liked how we responded to their spurts with a few of our own," said Leighty. "We just couldn't get a shot to fall in the final eight minutes."
The visiting Raiders were held to a mere two points in the final frame and watched as Williamsburg went on a game-ending 12-2 run to take the eight-point final.
"This was a great battle between two very good defensive oriented teams," said Leighty.
...
"Williamsburg handed Marion their only loss this year so we knew they are a good team," said Leighty.

"We looked at it as more of a challenge than a burden," said Anamosa girls basketball coach Jack Leighty. "While we weren't able to win either game, we did play a very good Central DeWitt team tough for four quarters."
Anamosa (6-7, 6-5) hosted the third-ranked Sabers Friday, January 14, and fought to the final horn before succumbing to a 48-33 defeat.
"We played them tougher than any team not named Mount Vernon has all year," said Leighty.
...
"She pretty much did whatever she wanted," said Leighty.
...
"I think we had them frustrated there for a while," said Leighty.

"Those two played great games," said Leighty. "To go against DeWitt's low-post players and score is quite an accomplishment. Lauren Buck did a nice job running the point position for us too."
Anamosa hosted second-ranked Mount Vernon Tuesday, January 11, and were handed their most lopsided loss of the season suffering a 68-26 setback.
"It seemed whatever Mount Vernon put up, went through the hoop all game long," said Leighty.

"We only had one team foul and I told the girls to commit a foul before Maquoketa got a shot off," said Anamosa girls basketball coach Jack Leighty.
...
"Thankfully she made just two of the three shots and we went into overtime," said Leighty. "In the extra four-minute session, the Raiders took over, holding the Cardinals scoreless taking the thrilling 38-32 victory.
"This was an amazing way for our seniors to go out," said Leighty.
...
"It was a charged atmosphere all game long," said Leighty as the season's largest crowd showed their support for the team in their home finale.
...
