The Truckee basketball teams earned league wins at Dayton on Tuesday, the girls by a score of 42-34 and the boys 48-45.
The Truckee girls established control from the start and led 15-2 after the first quarter. The hosts played the Wolverines evenly the remainder of the contest but could not overcome the early deficit.
Seven different players scored for the Wolverines, led by Katie Fisher’s 13 points. Adela Ortiz added nine points, Shelby Brooks scored eight and Sydney Mock had six.
Marcelle Reynaud, Jennifer Espinoza and Isabella Abarno each scored two points.
Truckee improved to 4-10 in Northern Division I-A play and 6-13 overall, while Dayton fell to 0-14 in league and 2-19 overall.
In the boys game, Dayton carried a 25-13 lead into the half and led most of the way.
The Wolverines never threw in the towel, however. They took over the lead with about a minute remaining and then held off the Dust Devils to pick up the well-deserved win.
“We played hard. We always play hard,” said Truckee coach Sky Nelson. “Our defense has been pretty stellar.”
The Wolverines improved to 3-11 in league play and 5-17 overall; Dayton dropped to 2-13 in league and 4-17 overall.
Both Truckee teams took on Spring Creek at a neutral site in Lovelock on Thursday night. The games, which ended too late for publication, were originally scheduled for last Friday in Truckee but were postponed due to a power outage.
“It’s a big game for us,” Nelson said, “because we could help South Tahoe get a better seed if we win.”
