Coleville girls win home tournament

The Coleville Lady Wolves basketball team scored 40 of their 63 points in the second half to open the season with a convincing win over Big Pine, Calif., in the Antelope Valley Lions Club Tournament in Coleville over the weekend.

Senior guard Esperanza Buerhle led the Wolves with 19 points and seven assists.

Senior forward Fallon Frye led the team with 15 rebounds and scored 17 points in a strong performance.

Junior forward Samantha Gall played a super all-around game ending with eight points, 12 rebounds, five assists and five steals.

“I was especially happy with the play of freshman guard Amara Rowley, who was forced into a starting role because of a disciplinary action that kept two starters on the bench,” girls coach Will Sandy said.

Rowley scored 11 points and played great defense ending with a team-high nine steals.

Coleville held on to win the championship game with a 38-36 win over Whittell.

Samantha Gall led the Wolves with 10 points and 12 steals. Fallon Frye continued her strong play with eight points, 11 rebounds and five steals.

Buerhle scored nine points and had nine assists.

Breezy Rupp came off the bench to score four points and grab three rebounds. Both teams played very well defensively.

“I was worried about our bench heading into the season,” Sandy said. “But it looks like we will have eight solid players.”

Fallon Frye was named the tournament MVP and Buehrle earned all-tournament team honors.

Coleville hosted Whittell Tuesday night and will travel to Gerlach for a weekend tournament.
