North Medford used an aggressive approach and spread the wealth to turn back South Eugene, 79-36, in Southwest Conference girls basketball action Friday at North Medford High.

Ten of the Black Tornado’s 11 players reached the scoring column, led by Megan Fossen’s 18 points and 10 rebounds, and North Medford jumped out to a 36-15 lead by halftime thanks to an energetic effort.

“I loved our intensity and our defense,” said Black Tornado head coach Tim Karrick. “We got after them early and created a lot of turnovers that turned into transition points. It was good for us to start playing with that determination and focus.”

North Medford (13-8, 5-4 SWC) forced 32 turnovers and committed only nine overall for a solid night on both ends against the visiting Axemen (4-15, 1-8).

Sophomore Talia Baker saw extended playing time and scored a career-high 11 points to go with three assists and three steals, while senior Savannah Bumgardner had 10 points and junior M.J. Hamilton added nine points and six assists. Junior Rylee Karrick added eight points, three assists and three steals for North.
