Lady Tigers topple Wooster

by Joey Crandall

In just one week, the Douglas girls’ basketball team went from being 0-3 and struggling to find a rhythm on the court, to 4-3 and looking once again like a Sierra League playoff contender.

“The girls have been playing hard and they are starting to figure this system out,” Douglas coach Werner Christen said. “They’ve been finding the extra pass and making some good cuts on offense. We’re still young, but they’re starting to figure out who they are.”

Indeed.

Douglas got points from all but two of its players as the Tigers extended their win streak to four Tuesday night with a 59-32 win at Wooster.

Monica Knight led an extremely balanced scoring effort with nine points.

Allie Hughes, Sarah Hartley and Jessica Waggoner each scored eight points, Nicole Didero scored six and Bridget Maestretti scored five.

Kristin Wyatt scored three points and Autumn Burtt, Kayla Horse, Gina Pfaffenberger and Felicia Imelli each scored two.

Douglas outscored the Colts 18-3 in the first quarter and 22-9 in the second, coasting to the win from there.

The Tigers are now 8-13 overall and 4-3 in Sierra League play. Douglas hosts Carson tonight at 5:15 p.m. and Damonte Ranch Saturday at 3:15 p.m.
