LAKE OSWEGO — South Medford continued its impressive run in the early season, getting a record-breaking effort from Tess Picknell and defeating Centennial, 48-42, in the Nike Laker Interstate Shootout Tuesday at Lake Oswego High.

Picknell, a 6-foot-5 sophomore post, had three blocked shots to go with nine points and nine rebounds. She has 17 blocks in three games, breaking the tournament record of Asha Wilkerson of Jesuit, who had 15 in four games in 2000. South Medford coaches thought Picknell tied the mark after three games but made the correction Tuesday.

Picknell has a chance to add to the record today in a game for fifth place in the 16-team bracket against Jefferson, the No. 2-ranked Class 5A team. The contest is at 10:30 a.m.

The Panthers (7-2) and their sophomore- and freshman-dominated lineup take on a Jefferson team that stayed close with Mater Dei of Santa Ana, Calif., before losing to the No. 1-ranked team in the nation, 74-55. Jefferson trailed by eight with 51/2 minutes to play.

"It's good for these kids," said South Medford coach Tom Cole. "There's great competition up here, and it's good to get a little of that. We'll have our hands full with Jefferson."

Against Centennial, Hannah Curtius made two baskets in transition late in the third quarter and early in the fourth to keep the Panthers close. They trailed by four entering the final period.

Leilani Morris, who was fighting illness and sat for a while, entered in the fourth and made two shots from inside the key on spin moves, then freshmen guards Kylie Towry and Yaremi Mejia combined for four free throws down the stretch.

Curtius led the Panthers with 10 points and Towry had nine. Mejia notched six assists and two steals.
