Freshman girls reel off five wins in a week

Posted

The Powell High School girls freshman basketball team racked up five straight wins last week, beating Worland, Douglas, Buffalo, Lovell and then Worland again between Jan. 11 and 14.

They’re now 6-1 since the break — including three wins on Jan. 11 in Buffalo.

“I was extremely proud of the girls,” said freshman coach Andrew Borcher, who felt the team made some good steps defensively.

“... Kami Jensen continues to shine for us turning her defensive into easy layups. Megan Jacobsen continues to have a motor on defense” and “Grace Coombs did a real nice job for us in the final game against Buffalo,” Borcher said.

 

Powell 52, Worland 8

Scoring — Kami Jensen 14, Maddie Campbell 12, Mikayla Graham 6, Anna Bartholomew 4, Grace Coombs 4, Megan Jacobsen 4, Blake Nissen 4, Gretel Opps 2, Alexis Terry 2.

 

Powell 47, Douglas 9

Scoring — Jensen 12, Campbell 7, Bartholomew 6, Coombs 6, Nissen 5, Abby Wambeke 5, Jacobsen 4, Terry 2.

 

Powell 34, Buffalo 28

Scoring — Coombs 10, Jensen 8, Campbell 6, Jacobsen 5, Bartholomew 3, Graham 2.

 

Powell 36, Lovell 31

The team followed up the Buffalo tourney with a Jan. 13 home win over Lovell.

“This was a game where we trailed a majority of the game but we kept fighting,” Borcher said, saying he felt the team “really grew up” in the comeback.

Scoring — Jacobsen 6, Opps 6, Bartholomew 4, Campbell 4, Coombs 4, Graham 4, Terry 4, Jensen 2, Nissen 2, Wambeke 2.

 

Powell 44, Worland 21

While the team’s energy wasn’t as good as prior games, “everyone that we brought contributed in one way or another,” in Worland on Jan. 14, Borcher said. Bartholomew “had a great game as our floor general,” he said, while Graham “has steadily gained more confidence.”

Scoring — Jensen 11, Bartholomew 10, Coombs 6, Graham 5, Jacobsen 3, Wambeke 3, Nissen 2, Opps 2, Terry 2.

 

Powell 38, Cody 16

The Powell girls handily beat Cody at home on Jan. 6, racing out to a 24-7 lead at halftime and winning 38-16.

All 10 freshman players scored in what the coach felt was the team’s most complete offensive effort to date. He praised Terry for becoming more aggressive and an offensive threat and Opps’ increased confidence.

Scoring — Jacobsen 6, Opps 6, Bartholomew 4, Campbell 4, Coombs 4, Graham 4, Jensen 2, Nissen 2 and Wambeke 2.

 

Rocky Mountain 27,  Powell 20

In their first game after the winter break, the PHS freshmen struggled to get into a rhythm offensively at Rocky Mountain on Jan. 2.

“I told the girls we are going to have games where we struggle offensively and we have to fight through it and continue attacking,” Borcher said.

Scoring — Campbell 6, Coombs 4, Opps 4, Graham 2, Nissen 2, Bartholomew 1, Terry 1.
