Columbia High girls erupt for 83 in home win

Claire Anderson shoots for two of her game-high 19 points in Columbia High’s 83-30 1A Trico League victory over Stevenson here Monday night. The Bruins have a tough rematch at La Center tonight that “will tell a lot,” said Bruins Coach Howard Kreps.

Claire Anderson and Kay-la McClain combined for 36 points to power Columbia’s girls basketball team to an 83-30 1A Trico League victory over Stevenson here Mon-day night.

Anderson put in 19 points and McClain scored 17 (including 5-of-9 on 3-point attempts) as the Bruins improved to 5-3 in Trico play and remained in third place with two contests to go.

The Bruins led 17-10 after one quarter but turned the game into a rout in the second with defensive pressure that forced numerous turn-overs and gave them additional scoring opportunities.

Anderson had 12 first-half points and eight in the second, when the Bruins pulled away to lead 37-15 at halftime. Morgan Vasquez, who finished with 15, tallied nine first-half points to McClain’s six on two 3-pointers.

Michaela Enyart chipped in 12, and Savannah Story added eight.

“We shot 31 for 81 from the field,” said Bruins Coach Howard Kreps. “When we shoot how I think we can from watching practice, we could scare some people.”
