RAYMOND —Hailee Williams’ 15 points led Raymond’s balanced scoring in a victory over Ocosta in Pacific League play on Saturday at Raymond.

Ocosta’s starting guard Lexie Schmeling went out during the first quarter with an injury and was unable to return to the game.

Williams grabbed six rebounds and dished up three assists for the Gulls (1-0, 3-1). Aubree Gardner handed out three assists and swiped four steals. Gardner and Aiyisha Garcia scored 10 points apiece.

Freshman Mikayla Collins came in off the bench and scored eight points and came up with four steals.

Kate Christiansen was the leading scorer for the Wildcats (0-1, 1-3) — registering a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds.

“After their starting guard (Schmeling) was injured, they had no answer for our press,” said RHS head coach Jon Schray. “We had 26 total steals and turned our turnovers into points. We made our defense turn into opportunities for our offense.”

Schray cited freshman Collins for fine play off the bench and senior Williams for working hard all night.

“We started out well and had to trade positions when our starting guard hurt her knee,” said Ocosta head coach Jason Barnum. “We handled the full-court press well, but only scored eight points by halftime. We set a goal to double that in the second half and came close.”

On Monday, Raymond will travel to Montesano. Ocosta will hit the road to Mary M. Knight that same night.

That was too much for the Indians to overcome, although they scored 22 points against a unit composed primarily of starters in the fourth quarter.

“We pretty much played them toe-to-toe,” South Bend coach Tom Betrozoff summarized. “The difference in the game was the middle two quarters of dormant offense and unforced turnovers. I was proud of the kids’ performance. (Wahkiakum) is a good club.”

Miles Davis scored 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds for South Bend.

Mark Morris meet

LONGVIEW — Freshman Dustin Young had the highest Aberdeen finish in the Mark Morris Pentathlon on Saturday at the Mark Morris High School pool.

Young was sixth in the 25-yard backstroke with a time of 14:27. He wound up 24th in the meet in total points scored.

Aberdeen was 10th in the 16-team meet, but third among teams that form its informal league.

Bobcat coach Rebecca Rowe was encouraged by significant time drops in several events. Some of those who competed in this meet last year improved their marks betwen one and five seconds in 25-yard races.

“Overall, I think this was a great meet for the guys,” Rowe observed. “Even though most of them were swimming either new events for them or races they weren’t used to (swimming), the guys really went out, gave it their all and performed very well.”

The Bobcats received district-qualifying swims from Young, Levi Rose, Robby Lewis, Seth Caba, Mike Lang and Keegan Shippey. Lang, Cody Swor and John Jugum were cited for fine performance.

The Bobcats will visit River Ridge in a dual meet on Wednesday

Aberdeen swimmers to finish in the top 15:

200 IM — Dustin Young, ninth. 100 fly — Robby Lewis, 13th. 25 fly — Levi Rose, 10th. 25 free — Young, seventh. 500free — Branden Grigsby, 15th. 25 back — Young, sixth.
