Chamberlin drops 38 points in South opener

Ula Chamberlin opened the South Medford girls basketball team’s season with a splash in the Panthers’ home-opener Friday.

Chamberlin’s full offensive arsenal was on display as she racked up 38 points, leading the Panthers to a 70-47 nonleague victory over visiting Lake Oswego.

“Ula’s performance was unbelievable,” said coach Tom Cole, whose senior-less Panthers will rely on Chamberlin, a junior, as the lone upperclassmen, complementing one sophomore and seven freshmen.

“There’s going to be some growing to do and a learning curve but I think tonight was a good start,” Cole said.

Chamberlin shot 13 of 16 (81 percent) from the field. She was also 7-for-8 from the free throw line and knocked down 5 of 7 from 3-point range.

The Panthers (1-0) seized control early, gaining a 26-5 advantage by the end of the first quarter.

Sophomore Bella Pedrojetti dropped in 13 points and connected on three from downtown for the Panthers, who received eight points, six rebounds and a pair of blocks from freshman Shakia Perry.

The Lakers were led by Janie Ruttert’s 13 points, with Megan Woolard and Katy Gilbert pitching in 10 points apiece.
