Vandals take two at home; Eagles take Shootout consolation prize

Senior forward Danielle Curtis scored 19 points and pulled down 11 rebounds last Saturday to help lead Klickitat to its second victory of the 2003-04 girls high school basketball season.

Curtis, who made 8-of-13 shots, keyed the Vandals’ 58-25 non-league win against visiting Arlington, Ore., scoring 12 points in a 25-2 second-quarter run that propelled Klickitat into a 33-12 halftime lead.

Freshman center Aryn Davis added 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Klickitat's starting backcourt, seniors Kaeley Schultz and Lyndsey Huwe, also contributed to the Vandals’ victory — in big ways and small.

Schultz finished with 11 points, seven assists and six steals, and Huwe tallied nine points, eight steals and five rebounds.

As a team, Klickitat recorded 42 rebounds, 19 steals and 15 assists, and made 39 percent of its field-goal attempts (22/57) and 60 percent of its free throws (12/20).

At Sherman County, Ore. 63, Lyle 18 --

The Huskies outscored the Cougars, 30-5, in the second half last Saturday to win the championship game of their tournament.

Sherman County, a pre-season favorite to win Oregon's Class 2A title, led, 24-5, after one quarter and 33-13 at halftime.

"Their height and quickness were too much for us, especially on the press," Cougars Coach Verlyn Smith said. "But I think playing a tough pre-season schedule is going to help us in the long run."

Senior Dawn Ullom led Lyle (1-1) in scoring, sinking 5-of-6 free throws on her way to nine points.

Senior Taralee Graves added six points, and senior Kristin Brown had three points, five assists and two steals.

Glenwood 34, at Trout Lake 23 --

The Eagles pulled away from the Mustangs in the second half last Saturday to claim third place in the Mount Adams Shootout.

Glenwood led, 19-8, at halftime, and by 10 (25-15) after three quarters.

Freshman forward Ashley Brasuell scored a game-high 16 points to lead the Eagles (2-1). Junior Kayleigh King tallied 10 points, five in each half.

Freshman Kim Poland spurred on the Mustangs (0-2), netting five of her team-leading nine points in the fourth quarter. Senior Rachel Anderson added seven points.

At Klickitat 68, Yakama Tribal 34 --

Four players scored in double figures, and a fifth tallied nine points, as the Vandals rolled to a season-opening non-league victory last Friday.

Senior Danielle Curtis led the way for Klickitat, finishing with a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds. She also had a team-leading six steals.

Freshman Aryn Davis shot 6 for 9 in her prep debut and finished with 14 points.

Senior Kaeley Schultz made 5-of-9 shots from the floor on her way to 12 points. She also collected eight rebounds.

Classmate Lyndsey Huwe had 10 points, five steals and four assists, and freshman Trisheena Keys netted nine points on 3-of-3 shooting from 3-point range.

Lyle 39, South Wasco County, Ore. 29 --

Senior Mitzi McMurrin scored nine of her game-high 14 points in the fourth quarter last Friday to lead the Cougars past the Redsides in a semifinal game of the Sherman County Tournament.

Lyle took a 14-12 halftime lead by outscoring South Wasco, 9-7, in the second quarter. The Redsides rallied in the third, however, to get within 24-23.

But the Cougars turned the defensive intensity up a notch in the final period to pull away.

"Our man-to-man defense was exceptional," Cougars Coach Verlyn Smith said. "And Mitzi had a great game, both on offense and defense."

So did senior Dawn Ullom, who totaled nine points, six rebounds and six assists in the win.

Seniors Kristin Brown, Taralee Graves and Christina Grace combined for 16 points, nine rebounds, nine steals and eight assists.

Christian Faith 44, Glenwood 11 --

The Eagles fell behind 18-0 in the first quarter of last Friday's semifinal game of the Mount Adams Shootout in Trout Lake.

They never recovered against their Seattle opponents, who went on to lead 24-4 at halftime and 38-7 after three quarters.

For Glenwood (1-1), junior forward Kayleigh King scored a team-best five points, all in the second half.

Amanda Kuhnhausen, Hannah Page and Stacey Ruland combined for the other six.

At Glenwood 30, Stevenson JV 25 --

Amanda Kuhnhausen's last two free throws clinched the Eagles' season-opening non-league victory Dec. 2.

Kuhnhausen, a 5-3 junior guard, led all scorers with 15 points, netting five field goals and 5 of 8 from the foul line.

Eight of her points came in the fourth quarter, and half of those from the line.

Glenwood trailed, 10-6, after one quarter but turned the game in its favor in the second.

Kuhnhausen and junior forward Kayleigh King combined for nine points in that period to spark an 11-point outburst by the Eagles, whose defense held the Bulldogs jayvee scoreless.

King hit three field goals and 3-of-4 free throws to finish her Glenwood debut with nine points.
