Girls' Basketball: Lady Wolves gain momentum heading into playoffs

The Coleville High School girls' basketball team took two out of their last three league games to clinch the second seed in the Northern 1A playoffs to begin Thursday in Winnemucca.

In Tuesday's action, Virginia City knocked Coleville out of a first place tie with a convincing 45-31 victory at Virginia City.

Coleville was held to only 22 percent from the field with the Lady Wolves leading scorer Amara Rowley being held to only five points.

Kimberly Torley provided the only bright spot for Coleville leading the team with 13 points and 17 rebounds.

The Lady Wolves rebounded at home on Friday night with 48-29 win over league rival Smith Valley.

Rowley celebrated her last home game with a dominating performance including 22 points, 13 steals, eight rebounds and seven assists.

Torley had eight points and nine rebounds and Sarah Holden finished with five points and five rebounds.

Junior Skyler Isbell also played well with four points, seven rebounds, and three steals.

Coleville finished the regular season with a 54-30 win over the hosting Excel Christian Warriors.

After a lack-luster first half, the Lady Wolves outscored the Warriors 31-15 in the second.

Rowley finished with 19 points, nine rebounds, six assists, and five steals and Torley had 13 points, nine rebounds, and four steals.

Holden and Isbell each added six points and played solid all-around games.

Tawny Booher and Linzy Garcia finished the regular season on a positive note each scoring their first varsity basket.

"I was very happy with the way we responded to Tuesday's disastrous loss at Virginia City," Coleville coach Will Sandy said. "We put together two dominating performances to conclude the regular season giving us valuable momentum heading into the playoffs."
