The Coleville girls regained sole possession of first place in the Western 1A League over the weekend with wins over Gerlach and Pyramid Lake.

Coleville picked up a 35-26 win over Gerlach Friday night getting 13 points each fron Amara Rowley and Kimberly Torley.

Torley also led Coleville with nine rebounds.

Rowley had eight rebounds, five assists and four steals.

"Although we struggled offensively, we controlled the boards and held Gerlach to only 17 percent shooting from the field," Coleville coach Will Sandy said.

The Lady Wolves closed out their home season Saturday with a 59-42 win over Pyramid Lake. Rowley had 23 points and 12 rebounds in that matchup while Torley had 16 points.

Torley scored 16 points and grabbed 17 rebounds.

Skyler Isbell played her best game of the season with 11 points, seven rebounds and three steals.

Kassie Pemberton had five points and four steals and seniors Kayla Johnson and Jackie Beard each made strong defensive contributions.

Coleville ended the week 7-1 in league play and 15-8 overall.


The Lady Tigers won four of their last five games and improved to 7-3 in league and 15-5 overall.

Douglas started things off beating Hug 61-30, getting 16 points from Ally Freitas and 10 from Helen Fillmore.

Krista Castro shut down Hug's top shooter in the game.

Douglas then entertained Wooster at home and beat up on the Colts 46-11. Jessica Gorton led all scorers with 12 points while Sarah Phillips dumped in nine.

Douglas held Wooster to just three field goals from the floor en route to the Tigers' best defensive performance of the year.

The Tigers then traveled up to Carson and lost 42-32. Gorton scored eight points and Freitas and Fillmore each had seven.

Douglas bounced back, however, to pick up a 41-30 win over North Valleys.

Freitas put up nine points while Gorton and Melisssa Brown each had eight.

Fillmore balanced out the scoring with seven points of her own.

Douglas traveled to South Tahoe Friday and came away with a 37-8 win over the Lady Vikings.

Megan Michitarian led all scorers with 10 points while Freitas and Gorton chipped in six and five respectively.

"It's always tough to play this league schedule in January and February," coach Dave Pfaffenberger said. "You hope that you've done a good job with practicing early on, because there really isn't a lot of time to practice and make too many corrections now."


Douglas bounced back from their first league defeat to pick up two big wins.

The Lady Tigers took a 32-27 win over North Valleys Monday, getting 11 points from Ne'Jae Jackson, six from Julia Miller and five each from Susie White and Christy Harvey. CJ Baumgartner finished with three and Kaitlin Babbitt had two in the game.

North Valleys led 27-24 heading into the fourth quarter, but Douglas posted a fourth-quarter shutout to pick up the win.

"We played very tough defense when it counted," Douglas coach Steve Walsh said. "Any time you allow zero points in a quarter, you know your team has accomplished something."

Douglas followed that win with a 51-31 win over Hug. The Tigers jumped out to a 25-6 halftime lead and pushed it from there, running their league record to 10-1. Douglas also improved to 16-4 overall.

Jessica Burtt led the way with 11 points, Sara Mangiaracina had nine, Jackson scored seven, Amanda Soto had six, White and Brianna Rutherdale had four and Harvey and Jamie Lorntzen had three each. Baumgartner and Linnette Kinney finished with two each.
