Prep Roundup: Taholah girls beat Hyaks


GIRLS BASKETBALL

Chitwhins 48, Hyaks 26

OYEHUT — Taholah’s Nicole Hidalgo took control of the paint in the second half, allowing the visitors to hold North Beach to just three field goals in the second half for a non-league victory on Tuesday night.

Hidalgo led all scorers with 17 points for the Chitwhins (1-0). Trish Dunn added nine points.

Quay Sotomish led the Hyaks (0-2) with 11 points, 10 rebounds and five steals.

“I thought in the second half (Taholah) did a better job,” North Beach head coach Brett Mackey said. “They got us running and scored transition baskets. Nicole is tough. We just couldn’t get bodies on people to rebound. They did a better job of executing and we didn’t put the ball into the basket.”

Today, Taholah hosts Clallam Bay. On Saturday, North Beach travels to Northwest Christian in a Pacific League opener.

RAYMOND — Four players scored in double figures as Raymond topped Rainier to notch its first win on Tuesday night at Raymond.

Freshman Winter Newman topped Raymond’s balanced attack with 13 points. Hailee Williams added 12 points, 16 rebounds, four assists and three steals. Aubree Gardner and Aiyisha Garcia chipped in with 10 points apiece, with Garcia also collecting 13 rebounds, five steals and three assists.

The Gulls (1-1), who had committed 27 turnovers in a season-opening loss, were guilty of only 16 in this contest while pressing the Mountaineers into numerous miscues.

“We rotated between presses the whole game,” Raymond coach Jon Schray reported. “We cut down on the turnovers and our defensive pressure just made it a better game for us.”

The Gulls travel to Tenino on Thursday.

Vikings 56, Elks 22

AMANDA PARK — Limiting Lake Quinault to six points in the first three quarters, Willapa Valley romped past the Elks in a non-league contest Tuesday night at Amanda Park.

The Vikings (3-1) led 32-5 at the half and substituted liberally throughout.

“We got off to a really good start,” Viking coach Matt Bannish said. “We presed and ran our offense.”

All 10 Vikings who suited up scored. Karli Friese led the attack with 14 points, while Brooke Harden grabbed nine rebounds. Lauren Friese, Karli’s cousin, had nine points and five boards.

Alex Blackburn topped the Elks (2-1) with 11 points. Quinault was guilty of 23 turnovers.

“We got a hard time getting into the flow of our offense,” Quinault assistant coach Jon Neeland said. “What we did to Ocosta (in a win last week), they did to us.”

Although limited to four points, Quinault’s Romey Begay had 13 rebounds, six blocked shots, three assists and three steals. Faith Thomas and Mikaila Blackburn were cited for fine defense.

The Elks host Forks tonight. The Vikings open Pacific League play Friday at Naselle.

The Vikings hit 12-of-19 field-goal attempts in the first quarter in bolting to a 26-6 lead.

“We played a really, really good first half,” Valley coach John Peterson said. “We pressed and it bothered them. They’re a young team.”

Matt Konigsberger added 15 points, while Kyler Oblad grabbed eight rebounds for Willapa Valley.

Quinault’s Chayton Johnson was credited with a fine all-around performance.

The Elks return to action tonight at home against Forks. Valley opens Pacific League play Friday at Naselle.
