If the Douglas High girls' basketball team suffered any lag from its 10-day layoff heading into the final two months of the season, the Lady Tigers certainly didn't show it Tuesday night.
Douglas jumped out to a 22-11 first quarter lead and pushed it from there, taking a 58-35 win over Damonte Ranch.
With the win, the Tigers improved to 12-6, 2-0 on the year.
"We got out to a real nice start," Douglas coach Werner Christen said. "We had a good three or four days of practice last week and that carried over into the game.
"We were really happy as a staff with what they did. They ran the floor well and spread the ball around. It was good."
Christen said he was most happy about the seven offensive rebounds the Tigers' surrendered.
"We've been working on that," he said. "That was very good for us. When we can rebound it and kick it, we're not bad. We really stress not giving up those second shots."
Jessica Waggoner led the Tigers with 15 points while Katie Buffo scored 10 with two 3-pointers.
"Katie has really come on strong for us," Christen said. "She's worked hard and earned some quality minutes for us. She's been doing a great job on the offensive end of the floor."
Gina Pfaffenberger, Danyelle Heidt and Bridget Maestretti each scored six points for the Tigers, Taryn Williams and Allie Hughes each had four and Nicole Didero, Ally Freitas and Sarah Hartley each had two.
The Lady Tigers host North Valleys Friday at 5:15 p.m.
