Klickitat began the second part of the 2003-04 basketball season the same way it began the first part: with a convincing win.
Senior Lyndsey Huwe scored a season-high 19 points and classmate Danielle Curtis added added 14 as the division-leading Vandals routed the visiting Glenwood Eagles, 54-23, in Greater Columbia B League action last Saturday.
Klickitat held an 18-0 lead after the opening eight minutes of play and led 25-9 at halftime. The score at the end of three quarters was 40-13.
The Vandals proved hard to stop at the offensive end as they connected on 44 percent of their field-goal attempts (21/48, 17/37 from 2-point range). From the foul line, they went 8 for 12.
Huwe made 11-of-16 shots overall, including 2 of 3 from the 3-point line and 5 of 6 from the charity stripe. She also had four rebounds and three steals.
Curtis finished with four steals and four rebounds (all on the offensive glass), and was 7 for 12 from the floor.
Senior Kaeley Schultz and freshman Aryn Davis each collected five rebounds to lead Klickitat (29 rebounds total) in that department.
Junior Jodi Holly scored two 3-pointers and 11 points overall to pace the Eagles, whose top scorers, junior Kayleigh King and freshman Ashley Brasuell, were held scoreless.
Bickleton 40, at Trout Lake 24 --
The Pirates held the Mustangs to one point in the first quarter last Saturday, then pulled away in the fourth.
Junior center Annie Hess put in a game-high 17 points for Bickleton, which led 10-1 after one quarter, 20-12 at halftime and 25-18 at the end of three.
Freshmen Jessica Knowles and Kim Poland scored nine and eight points respectively for the Mustangs, whose leading scorer, senior Rachel Anderson, was limited to five.
Glenwood 25, at Trout Lake 21 --
Junior Kayleigh King scored eight of her game-high 14 points after the break last Friday to lead the Eagles to the win over the Mustangs.
Glenwood took control of the GCB contest in the third quarter, outscoring Trout Lake, 8-6, to take a 16-14 lead.
The Eagles increased that to 21-14 with 4:25 remaining in the fourth quarter before the Mustangs rallied to within 23-20 in the late going.
Senior Caitlin Allaway helped bring Trout Lake back, putting in five of her seven points during the final eight minutes of action.
In the first 16 minutes, it was classmate Rachel Anderson who kept the Mustangs in the game. She scored seven of her team-leading nine points in the first half, which ended in an 8-8 deadlock.
Anderson got few looks at the basket in the second half, though, as the Eagles concentrated their defense on the Mustangs' 5-11 center.
