Freshmen lead Truckee girls in season-opening win over Sparks

The Truckee girls’ basketball team jumped into Class 3A Northern League play to start the year, opening the season at home on Tuesday, Dec. 5 against Sparks.

The girls would start slowly against the Railroaders, but turned a one-point advantage at the end of the first quarter into a 64-31 victory.

Freshman Emma Cooley made a big statement in her first high school game, hitting four, 3-pointers for a team-high 20 points.

Freshman Lauren Tanner was next in scoring for Truckee with 10 points, followed by senior Isabella Abarno with seven points.

Truckee will next play four games at the Whittell tournament. The Wolverines will open the tournament on Thursday, Dec. 7, against Class 2A Incline (2-0). The Highlanders are fresh off a 46-37 win over South Tahoe.

Truckee will then play Class 1A Owyhee and Class 4A Hug in doubleheader action the following day, and then close the tournament against Whittell on Sat. Dec. 9.
