Seagulls 62, Hyaks 31

RAYMOND — Abby Maneman led Raymond past North Beach with 21 points, six rebounds and three assists in Pacific League play on Friday at Raymond.

The fifth-ranked Gulls won their 15th straight. They did not have one of their leading scorers, Hailee Williams, who was out due to illness.

Courtney Hagain added 12 points, five rebounds and four steals. Shylo Boyes scored nine points and pulled down five rebounds for the Gulls (9-0, 15-1).

Hyak senior Wakeena DeLaCruz was her team’s leading scorer with a double-double, 14 points, 11 rebounds and five steals. Maria Garman came in off the bench and grabbed eight rebounds.

“We played tough defense and our bench players stepped up to fill in for (Hailee) Williams,” said Raymond head coach Jon Schray.

Schray praised freshman Jaisha Heckard for coming in off the bench to play for two quarters, scoring six points and grabbing rebounds and steals. He also commended Maneman, Boyes and Hagain for fine performances.

“We went into halftime only down 10, so I was excited about that,” said NB head coach Peter Fry. “Coming out of halftime, they (the Gulls) were able to go on a decisive run to start the third quarter and we had no offensive answer.”

Fry credited Garman with bringing energy to the team off the bench.

On Monday, Raymond hits the road to Tenino. On Wednesday, North Beach travels to Lake Quinault.
