Girls lose 3 at Stayton tourney


January 3, 2017

Sweet Home’s varsity girls basketball team lost three games during a tournament held Wednesday through Friday at Stayton High School.

They opened with a 74-28 loss against Tillamook. Thursday, they lost 54-21 to Scio, and Friday, they lost 36-31 to Woodburn.

Against Tillamook, “the girls didn’t come ready to play,” said Coach Dave McNeil.

The next day, they were ready to play, McNeil said. They played more solidly and had fun, but they still struggled.

“Laups are our problem right now,” McNeil said. “As soon as we get that, we’ll be in the 40s and 50s scoring.”

The Huskies had their best single half of the season against Woodburn, McNeil said. Fast breaking and playing as a cohesive unit of five, they led by 15 at one point, but they couldn’t maintain it into the second half.

The team was missing starter Sydney Mauer, who will be out with an injury for most of the season, McNeil said, and Kennedi Waldrop was off that day too.

“I’m thinking that if we had them, we would have won that game,” McNeil said.

The girls were scheduled to travel to Madras Tuesday and will host Crook County at 5:45 p.m. Friday. They begin league play at Sisters Jan. 13.
