Phoenix girls heat up for 53-30 win

PREP ROUNDUP

MYRTLE CREEK-- Slowly but surely, the Phoenix girls basketball team found an answer for its shooting woes against South Umpqua Thursday night.

The Pirates went 7-for-36 from the field in the first half but broke the game open with a 20-8 fourth-quarter surge for a 53-30 non-conference victory.

Jennifer Bones had 16 points and Jessica Prisbrey 14 for the Pirates, who led only 18-12 at halftime.

The tempo kind of came up a little bit, Phoenix coach Kyle Walker. They stayed away from that as much as they could playing half-court, but we created a few turnovers in the fourth quarter and were able to capitalize. The game was pretty close until that point.

Phoenix (3-2) converted 20 of 73 shots for the game, and only 7 of 19 from the free-throw line.

We were getting good looks, they just weren't going in, said Walker. Sometimes they go in and sometimes they don't. It seems like lately it's been more that don't.

Tara Curtis had 13 rebounds for Phoenix, and Prisbrey had six steals.

PHOENIX (53)-- Bones 16, Prisbrey 14, Meredith 4, Curtis 4, Nikodym 3, Jackson 2, Gallagher 2, Capp 2, Clark 0, Gonzalez 0. Totals: 20 7-19 53.

Anett Buchheim set a school record for the Pirates in the 100-meter butterfly with a time of 1:22.45, eclipsing the old record of 1:22.75.

Kristen Heath took the 200 individual medley, and Jean Emerson captured the 50 butterfly. Tristan Clouse won the 500 freestyle.

The Pirates had the top three finishers in the 50 freestyle and swept all three relays.

The Phoenix boys didn't fare quite as well, however, falling to Hidden Valley 88-52.

The Pirates won the 200 medley relay but were disqualified after an early takeoff. They later redeemed themselves by taking the freestyle relay with a team of Tony Byrd, Jacob Nelson, Zeb Tolman and David Stevens.

Byrd also finished second in the 100 butterfly while Richard White took second in the 100 breaststroke for Phoenix. Peter Thornhill was second in the individual medley and 100 backstroke for the Pirates.
