No change in top three for 1B girls


Sunnyside Christian completed their undefeated romp over Greater Columbia Gorge League opponents with a pair of wins last week. The Lady Knights were never threatened with an average score of 66-25. The closest any team in the league got was the 60-45 win over Trout Lake on Jan. 30. They did have a couple of losses on the season to White Swan and Mabton varsities. They also defeated varsity teams from Kiona-Benton and Naches Valley, Columbia-Burbank, all 1A teams.

Bickleton lost to the Lady Knights early last week 61-26. Hannah Pond led the Pirates with 11 points. Annie Brouwer had 20 for the Knights.

On Saturday night, Sunnyside Christian traveled to Lyle and defeated the Lady Cougars 69-38. Lacy Carse and Kiya Childers led the charge for the Cougars with 14 points each, but only two other Cougars scored. Katelyn Banks was tops for the Knights with 22 points.

Bickleton completed their regular season in style with wins over Klickitat 64-20 and Trout Lake 62-37, thus locking up second place. The Lady Pirates fin

ish tied in league play with Lyle-Wishram, but won both games they played.

Pond again was leading scorer for Bickleton against Klickitat. The junior hit for 13 points with Kira Harvey adding 10 and another 10 players putting points on the board.

Lindsay Brown added outside scoring to her repertoire, leading the Pirates over Trout Lake on Saturday. Brown, the Pirates’ only senior, had 20 points on senior night for Bickleton. Pond scored 15. Trout Lake’s Bethany Putnam was a force inside and out for Trout Lake, scoring 17 points to lead the Lady Mustangs. Beyyine Ozkan had 11 points and Mckinzie Wurtz was saddled with foul trouble, finishing with just one point.

Lyle-Wishram also defeated Trout Lake last week 37-24 in a game that lacked the big scoring from Cougar three-point shooters. Maelynn Luke was tops for the Cougars with 10 points and Ellie Smith scored nine to go with 14 rebounds. Ozkan scored 11 points for Trout Lake and Putnam had seven against an equally tough Cougar defense.

Trout Lake kept things interesting by knocking off Yakama Nation, 42-38 last Friday. It put the Lady Mustangs in position to steal the fourth playoff spot from the Eagles if they could win on Tuesday and again in Wednesday’s tie-breaker, to be held at 6 p.m. at Goldendale High School.
