Jackie Lanz: Rebounding machine
Prairie’s Jackie Lanz is listed as 5-feet, 8-inches tall. She plays 6-2.
She can leap, and she has a motor that never stops. She is always in search of the ball.
Lanz grabbed a team-high nine rebounds in the championship game and led the Falcons in boards in the three-day tournament.
The Falcons have not had a lot of height in the past couple of years. Rebounding was a concern going into the tournament, too. The Falcons struggled at times in the bi-district and regional games.
But Prairie outrebounded its first two opponents at state. Franklin did have the edge Saturday, but it was not huge, 43-36.
