EAST WENATCHEE The White Swan girls basketball team proved too strong inside in a 67-35 win over Oroville in the consolation championship of the District 5/6 tournament Saturday.
The Cougars were led by 6-0 Emily Botkin (18 points) and 5-11 Cayla Jones (13 points) inside.
“We had no answer to their big people,” Oroville coach Mike Bourn said.
White Swan led 30-15 at the half.
Bourn told his team in the lockerroom during the breather that a couple 3-pointers and some defensive stops and the Hornets would have the lead cut down to single digits.
Instead, the Cougars won the third quarter, 22-10, aided in part by many Oroville turnovers.
Lily Hilderbrand, who played the majority of the game, led the Hornets with xx points.
Oroville (35) - Martin 2, Nutt 1, Worrell 0, S. Egerton 0, Miller 5, H. Hilderbrand 5, Kindred 0, Peters 1, L. Hilderbrand 19, Scott 2, Smith 0, K. Egerton 0.
White Swan (67) - Whitesell 0, Anderson 3, Botkin 18, Wolfsberger 0, Abrams 9, Mills 18, Tillequots 2, Fiander 2, Ramsey 2, Romero 0, Jones 13.
