The lady Mountaineers played some dominant basketball against Morton-White Pass on their court, with a final score of 51-32, Rainier.

“(The) Morton-White Pass game went well — got an early lead and maintained it throughout the game,” Rainier Coach Brandon Eygabroad said. “Started 15-0 and never let them back into it.”

By the end of the first quarter, Rainier was already up nine points with a score of 15-6. The lady Mountaineers continued to spread their lead into the second period, and by the half they were up 12 points, with a score of 29-17.

In the third quarter, they ladies stretched their lead to 18 points, and in the fourth they increased it by one more.

Kaeley Schultz scored 24 points; Sandra Miles scored 10 points; Bella Holmes scored 8 points; Alexis Diamond scored 4 points; and Faith Boesch; Elaina Hansen and Tanna Spivey each scored 2 points.

The team may be playing well together, but that doesn’t mean they can’t continue to grow, Eygabroad said.

“We still have so much room to improve as individuals and as a team,” he said. “I look forward to seeing how many small details we can get to each practice.”

In the home game against Mossyrock on Tuesday, the Rainier ladies won 57-44. The results of the home Adna game on Thursday were not available by press time.

The ladies’ next outing will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15 at Toledo.
