January 19, 2011 - Clarkston High School Senior Lindsey Reppuhn stands 5'5" with a strong presence on the basketball court.

Coming back from break she led the Clarkston Girls Varsity Basketball against Mount Clemens Chippewa Valley and Pontiac in their first games in the new year and the two wins.

Against Chippewa Valley, Reppuhn posted 14 points, scoring one 3-pointer and 8-of-11 free throws in the 51-41 win.

"She had some big free throw along the stretch," said Tim Wasilk, head coach.

During the game at Pontiac on Jan. 6, she scored the last ten points in the game, including a field goal in the last minute as well as 4-of-4 free throws in the 48-46 win. Reppuhn finished with 15 points.

"She is playing with a lot of confidence and playing like a senior should," said Wasilk. "She is giving us leadership. Lindsey comes to practice every day focused, ready to play and ready to work. She is definitely a good influence on the newcomers on the team."

During the next two games she scored three points each against Troy and Lake Orion.

"When she plays with confidence she shoots the ball well and definitely makes us better," said Wasilk. "She worked pretty hard during holiday break. Once she started hitting a few shots and started having a good game it snowballed for her. She has had a good streak of four games and I hope it continues for her."

She plans to continue playing basketball
