Tuesday’s Girls Basketball: Toledo Makes Hay Against Mark Morris
By The Chronicle
LONGVIEW — Toledo went on the road Tuesday and bested Mark Morris 59-35 in a non-league girls basketball test.
Kal Schaplow poured in 30 points to lead all scorers in the win.
It was defense, though, that opened up the scoring lanes for Toledo as they held Mark Morris to just 10 points before the half.
“We were executing pretty well offensively and we held them to single digits in both the first two quarters. Anytime you do that it’s pretty good,” said Toledo coach Brian Layton, who credited Alejandra Cadaraso with locking down the Monarchs’ best offensive weapon. “I thought Emma Cline-Maier and Grace Tuascher came in the game and contributed a lot defensively and gave us energy.”
Kily Koski-Haase and Jacie Rismoen each scored eight points to lead Mark Morris.
Toledo shot 42 percent from the field on 54 shots and snagged one more rebound than the Monarchs in the contest. Cadarso netted nine points for Toledo, while Stacie Spahr added eight points and a team-high nine rebounds.
Layton noted that his team amassed 17 assists, with Gracie Madill dishing four dimes herself.
“We feel pretty good. Mark Morris has a strong tradition and any time you go up against a bigger school and come out on top it feels good,” said Layton from the front of a happy bus. “We’re going up against an even bigger school on Friday and we’re looking forward to that too.”
Toledo (4-1) will play Graham Kapowsin at Saint Martin’s University at 10:45 a.m. on Friday.
Sederberg-Jones, Winter Record Double-Doubles in Rochester Win Over Orting
ROCHESTER — Lexie Sederberg-Jones and Paige Winter each collected a double-double to lead the Warriors to a 66-30 win against Orting in a non-league girls basketball game here on Tuesday.
Sederberg-Jones scored 20 points and grabbed 16 rebounds while Winter tallied 11 points and 12 rebounds. Kortney Kerbaugh was also recorded double digits with 11 points.
Natalie Linkem led the Cardinals with 10 points.
The Warriors had 47 rebounds, including 27 offensive rebounds. Sederberg-Jones had 14 offensive rebounds. Rochester had 19 steals and 18 assists as a team, with Maddix Schneider, Madison Bates and Winter each recording four assists.
Rochester jumped out to a 12-7 lead after one quarter and expanded the lead to 33-17 at halftime. It was all Warriors in the second half, outscoring the Cardinals 33-13.
“I was really pleased with the way we played. We were sharing the ball, moving it around,” Rochester coach Davina Serdahl said. “Our defense really got our offense going. It was nice to see three people in double digits.”
Serdahl commended the performance of Sadie Knutson, coming off the bench and scoring six points and having a team high six steals.
Rochester (4-1) will compete in the Seaside Tournament on Thursday through Saturday, starting with taking on host Seaside at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
Bearcat Defense Suffocates Eagles in Win
Elma’s Jalyn Sackrider scored 30 points but she was the only Eagle to score more than three points as the Bearcats won 50-35 in a non-league girls basketball game here on Tuesday.
Annika Waring had 10 points and six rebounds and Taya McCallum also had 10 points. Drea Brumfield scored nine points and Madi Mencke chipped in seven points.
The Bearcats shot 36 percent from the field while Elma shot 32 percent.
W.F. West led 15-6 after one quarter and expanded the advantage to 24-13 at halftime. The Bearcats won the second half, 26-22.
“Really, that’s our fourth game in six days. We’re battle tested, a little tired. We’ll definitely take the win,” W.F. West coach Kyle Karnofski said. “It wasn’t pretty at times, but we battled and were resilient all night and I’m pretty proud of them for that.”
W.F. West (4-2) travels to Cashmere for a tournament on Friday and Saturday, taking on Annie Wright at 6 p.m. on Friday before taking on host Cashmere on Saturday at 5:30.
Loggers Foil Grizzlies with Hot Second Quarter
ONALASKA — The Loggers used a whizbang second quarter to distance themselves from a group of charging Grizzlies here on Tuesday night as they defeated Hoquiam 47-30 in a non-league girls basketball matchup.
Onalaska outpaced Hoquiam 18-7 in that decisive second quarter thanks to a barrage of steals by Cierra Russ and a trio of three-pointers in rapid succession by Brooklyn Sandridge. Sandridge finished the game with those nine points, a game-high tally she shared with teammate Eryn Duryea.
As has been the case for most of the season, the scoring did not always come easily for the Loggers. As a team they made just 19 of 70 shots, for a clip of 27 percent. Onalaska coach Dracy McCoy noted that her team is averaging 70 shots per game so far this year with a shooting percentage hovering around 25 percent.
“We’re getting them up, putting them in is another matter,” said McCoy.
Alex Cleveland-Barrera added eight points and a team-high seven rebounds for Onalaska while Carmen Cleveland-Barrera scored seven points. Russ notched four points and five steals in the win while Callie Lawrence chipped in five points, five rebounds, four assists, and two steals.
“A few weeks into the season we’re growing,” noted McCoy, who has been especially pleased with the play of freshmen duo Morgan Hamilton and Sandridge. “We’re improving but we really need to start shooting the ball better.”
McCoy noted that Hoquiam touted a talented crop of guards who responded well to the Loggers’ varied offensive and defensive looks. Sadie Carlyle and Sharaya Brydon each scored six points for the Grizzlies.
Onalaska (3-2) will play Morton-White Pass in Randle on Thursday.
