Truckee JV girls hoops begin season

Provided to the Sun

The Truckee High junior varsity girls basketball team opened its season against Spanish Springs on Tuesday and lost 45-29.

The Wolverines played tough and tenacious defense, creating almost 20 turnovers, but were unable to convert on the offensive end.

Lack of gym time has slowed the team’s progress, said head coach Geoff Stephens, adding that until Truckee’s new gym opens the JV girls and boys teams must share floor time with the freshman squads.

“This game was really a practice for us,” Stephens said. “We were able to see what we need to work on. I was very pleased with the team’s effort. We will be very good, very soon.”

The Wolverines were led by the freshman trio of Katy Stephens, who scored eight points, and Chelsea Cordell and Annie Rodriguez, each of whom chipped in six points.

Defensively, sophomore Addie Shaffer was the Wolverines’ star, drawing two offensive fouls and creating multiple turnovers.

The Wolverines open league play at home against North Tahoe on Wednesday, Dec. 6.
