Girls’ hoops: Truckee wins three at North Valleys tourney
Truckee guard Felicia Tenorio was named to her second All-Tournament Team this season as the Wolverines finished their pre-league schedule with three straight wins at the North Valleys Winter Classic Tournament over the weekend.
On Friday, Tenorio scored 17 points in an 80-60 win over the Wooster Colts. Tenorio averaged 11.5 points in Truckee’s four tournament games, the only loss coming in overtime against the Reno junior varsity on Thursday. Tenorio was also named to the Hug Triple Threat All-Tournament Team earlier in the season.
Truckee’s 5-2 record is a positive sign for a Wolverines squad looking to turnaround last season’s last-place finish in the Northern 3A.
“We played as a team and learned how to win the close game,” said Truckee head coach Angelo Tenorio. “Everyone on the team contributed on offense and defense. We’re looking forward to league.”
Truckee’s league schedule tips-off at North Tahoe tonight (JV 3 p.m./varsity 6 p.m.). Truckee split two league matchups versus North Tahoe last season.
At North Valleys, senior Jesse Lamm’s 12 points led Truckee in the loss versus the Reno JV. Erica Rice and Katie Malone each had six rebounds, and Tenorio added six steals.
In the win over Wooster, Tenorio, Lamm (11), Malone (12) and Corina Mincey (16) all scored in double figures in Truckee’s highest point output of the young season. Malone had 14 rebounds, and the Wolverines stole the ball a total of 19 times.
On Saturday, Truckee defeated Incline, 42-18, and Fall River, 41-37, to be named Consolation Champions. In a collective effort against Incline, Malone was Truckee’s leading scorer with eight points. Six Truckee players had at least four points. Rice had eight steals, and Kelly Stephens had four assists.
Against Fall River, a high school in McArthur, Calif., Tenorio led Truckee in scoring with 12 points and Malone netted 10. The two were a combined 4-for-5 from the free throw line. Tenorio had nine steals, and Malone had six rebounds.
Rodriguez High School, from Fairfield, Calif., won the tournament championship with a 57-51 win over host North Valleys.
