PREP ROUNDUP: Challengers roll to second straight win

The Cascade Christian girls basketball team played the hot hand Thursday night, and it paid big dividends.

Sophomore Timnah Roberson scored 15 of her game-high 22 points in the first half, helping Cascade Christian build a 15-point first-quarter lead en route to a 42-23 win over Class 1A New Hope Christian at the Challengers’ gym.

Roberson scored 10 of the Challengers’ 16 first-quarter points, leading the way for Cascade Christian (2-3) to go up 16-1 after the opening quarter. She also hit all four of the Challengers’ 3-pointers, including three of those in the opening half.

“She hit a few big 3s early on and that really gave her confidence. She shot the ball really well,” Cascade Christian Jeff Roberson said. “We put a lot of full court pressure on (New Hope Christian), and that worked and caused a lot of turnovers.”

Cascade Christian senior Callie Sweem was at the center of the Challengers’ defensive effort, and was “a main contributor to causing a lot disruption defensively,” according to Jeff Roberson.

After leading 25-10 heading into halftime, Cascade Christian outscored New Hope Christian 14-3 in the third quarter to pull away.

Freshman Ava Barnett led the Warriors (2-2) with 14 points.
