PREP BASKETBALL: Defensive lifts Ashland girls over North

Basketball

The Ashland girls basketball team put together one of its finest defensive performances of the season on Monday against host North Medford.

Using their height, length and communication to their advantage, the Grizzlies’ defense held North Medford scoreless in the opening quarter en route to a 38-25 victory.

Abbey Lambert sparked the Grizzlies offensively, knocking down three 3-pointers on her way to a team-high 12 points while Kendyl Abel and Jayd Sollinger provided nine points apiece while creating much of Ashland’s defensive havoc.

Abel grabbed eight rebounds and had five blocks and Sollinger went for seven boards and five steals.

Jazmyne Wells paced the Black Tornado (2-6) with 12 points, and Kiera McNamee added nine rebounds in addition to her four points. Ali Stevens added eight rebounds.
