JV/Frosh roundup: JV girls win three games

The Douglas junior varsity girls' basketball team locked down on defense last week, picking up three wins along the way.

"The girls are working hard and doing most everything correctly on defense," Douglas coach Les Imelli said. "Our offense has always been very explosive and able to score.

"There have been seven players in double-digit scoring. Any one girl could step up and have a great scoring game."

The Tigers started their week with a 47-24 win over Hug, avenging a loss to the Hawks earlier in the season.

Briana Rutherdale led the team offensively with 12 points, while Megan Michitarian added 10 points and five steals.

Ne'Jae Jackson had 11 rebounds and Edna Meza had 10 rebounds.

Douglas then topped Wooster 55-14, coming up with a season-high 33 steals as a team.

Jackson had 15 points, Niki Hamzik had 12 and CJ Baumgartner added seven.

Jackson and Meza each had six rebounds.

The Tigers wrapped up the week pulling out a 35-30 nail biter over Carson.

Hamzik and Meza each scored seven points while Michitarian had six.

Jackson finished with 12 rebounds and Meza had eight as Douglas improved to 17-3 overall and 8-0 in league play.

The freshman Lady Tiger basketball team went 2-1 last week, running their record to 7-2 in league and 18-4 overall.

Douglas got up early against Hug and held the lead for a 59-44 win.

Jackie Harper led the way with 15 points followed by Carly McCullough with 14. Brianne Burnside had eight and Alex Laing had 6.

Douglas took a 54-22 win over Wooster Friday night, getting 10 points from Kathleen Salazar and eight apiece from Harper, Burnside and McCullough.

Douglas ha d 22-0 run over the first four minutes of the second quarter to key the win.

The Tigers just missed a perfect week, however, dropping a 46-38 decision against Carson on Saturday.

Carson built a 15-point lead with 4:30 left in the game, but Douglas put together an 11-2 run over the next three minutes to pull back within range.

Carson was able to hold on for the win from there.
