Sheldon runs past South Medford

GIRLS PREP BASKETBALL

EUGENE-- Sheldon's girls basketball team had on its track shoes Tuesday night in taming the South Medford Panthers.

The Irish zipped up and down the court in a flash of opportunistic scoring and sent the Panthers to their first defeat this season, 65-37.

Sheldon turned on the burners with the game knotted at 15-all in the second quarter, dashing South Medford's hopes with a 25-1 run to put the contest well out of reach in the third quarter.

We couldn't put the ball in the hole and they just were beating us up the floor, said South coach Andrea Wegner. We also had way too many turnovers.

The Panthers (2-1) committed 22 turnovers to Sheldon's nine and allowed near 50-percent shooting by the Irish while making only 11 of their own 49 attempts.

Sheldon's Laurie Slonecker poured in a game-high 15 points while Kellen Todd-Quinn had 12 and Sareid Faville had 10.

Junior post Karla Zenz led the Panthers, pulling down 18 of South's 37 rebounds. Zenz nearly outrebounded Sheldon on her own, with the Irish accounting for only 22 boards.
