Tovar, Hawks top Challengers

Rose Tovar poured in 20 points, played outstanding defense and helped the Rogue Valley Adventist girls basketball team shoot 59 percent from the field on its way to a 45-40 nonleague victory over Cascade Christian on Monday.

Tovar, who missed last season with a torn ACL, also grabbed eight rebounds and two steals for the Red Tail Hawks, who improved to 5-0.

“Having her back really contributes to the team with her experience and just overall,” said RVA coach Marlene Slagle. “She plays really good defense and works hard.”

Tovar’s defense helped slow, but not stop, Challengers star Emily Stephens, who finished with 15 points and seven rebounds.

Savannah Zamora added 10 points, seven boards and five assists for RVA while Sophie Ferreira chipped in 10 points for the Challengers (2-3).

CASCADE CHRISTIAN (40): Willard 3, Reed 5, Alexander 2, Meilicke 0, White 5, Ferreira 10, Stephens 15. Totals: 15-40 4-6 40.

ROGUE VALLEY ADVENTIST: Quave 0, Bennett 4, Belovitch 6, Zamora 10, De La Vega 1, Tovar 20, Wilhelms 4. Totals: 19-32 7-14 45.
