Vetta Maynard ..up ..up.. and away once again






 Coach Hill reports…. 

Tonight was a lot of fun and I think (and hope) the girls will agree with me! We played 4 great quarters of basketball for the first time in awhile. The second quarter was especially fun because Whitni England found her shooting touch as she torched Bridgeport for 12 points in that second quarter.


Once again in the first quarter we jumped out to good lead with Vetta Maynard getting 7 early points. Our scoring was the most balanced that it has been for us all year, which was huge to key our win. This was truly a team effort as we got scoring from 8 players and all eleven players got into the game and did well. We still need to get better at shooting free-throws and making our lay-ins, but ultimately this was great win and well deserved.


As usual our defense leads us to victory with 22 steals for the game. Our press was extremely effective tonight as our girls made it very difficult to even get the ball across half court. We also had another pretty good night with only 14 turnovers. This is especially good because of the fast breaking style of play we use as much as possible.

Marci Nelson had another good all around game with six rebounds, two assists and two steals. Verna LaCourse had three steals. Abby Bridgewater had an assist and a steal. Veronica Vanderholm played a great defensive game and also had 12 rebounds. Hailey Ellsworth dominated in the paint; Bridgeport could not even get any entry passes into the post against her. Angelica Suarez is no longer playing like a rookie, but instead she is playing more and more and proving herself to be a force at the varsity level. Eva Escoto has come a long way since she started playing in December; she is part of our rotation at the guard position. Eva did a great job handling the ball from the point tonight when we really needed her to. Yessenia Escoto came into the game and brought some fire with her, she goes as fast as she can non-stop creating some tough match-ups for other teams like Bridgeport tonight. Mindy Neal stepped in and had a nice jump shot that almost went down. Mindy was ready to be a free-throw shooter for us tonight had this game been close in the end. Whitni England was our leading scorer with twelve points and Vetta Maynard had six steals.

The Lady Trojans travel to Entiat on Tuesday, Jan. 27th with JV playing at 4:30 p.m. and Varsity at 6:00 p.m.  We host Kittitas on Friday, Jan. 30th with same game time. 6:00 p.m.
