JV girls win two

Motivated by a weekend series against the league’s two toughest teams, the Truckee High junior varsity girls basketball team defeated Spring Creek 49-35 on Friday night and Lowry 39-26 on Saturday.

The Wolverines are now 5-0 in the Northern 3A.

Against Spring Creek, Aly Coronado-Smith and Samantha O’Connell led Truckee with 11 points each. Six other Wolverines contributed to the effort, with Chelsea Cordell scoring eight, Brooke Griffin five, Heather Fisher and Mollie Askin four each,

Shannan Baumann three and Amber Davy two.

Team defense, the team’s staple, helped the offense get going, but the outside shooting of Coronado-Smith was the real boost.

On Saturday, the girls showed signs of being physically and emotional tired, but team play and balanced scoring pushed the Wolverines to victory.

“This game was won our bench,” said Geoff Stephens, Truckee’s head coach. “We did get some great play from a couple of starters, like Cordell and O’Connell, but it was the defensive push by Amber Davy and Natalie Duner in the second half that really got us going.”

Heather Fisher was credited with three fourth-quarter assists and a basket of her own to seal the victory.

“I was very pleased with intensity of backup post players Bailey Vincent and Citlali Hernandez,” Stephens said. “They haven’t gotten as much court time as I would like, but they play like they own this team.”

Dayton comes in Wednesday and then the Wolverines hit the road for Yerington and then again at Dayton.
