A-A hoops coach lauds ‘big picture,’ special talent

Alta Kiwanis Club members learned of the drive and determination of an A-A Warrior that Warrior fans are used to seeing excel, senior Lily Peterson.

“It would be the end of practice and I would try to tell Lily to go home and rest. Some 20 minutes later, she would be back in the gym, maybe kicking field goals,” said A-A coach Adam Rapp.

Peterson scored her 1,000th point of a four-year high school career at Manson-Northwest Webster and was honored at her last and final home regular season game, Feb. 2 against Newell-Fonda. She scored 28 points against Emmetsbug Jan. 30.
