Prep Girls Basketball: Rochester Holds Off Tenino

TENINO — Rochester had a big third quarter to help the Warriors defeat Tenino 53-46 in a nonleague girls basketball game here on Tuesday.

Lexi Jones-Sederberg scored 18 points to lead Rochester. Paige Winter added 13 points and Maddix Schnieder scored 11 points in her first varsity start, with coach A.J. Easley commending her play.

Tenino’s Kaylee Schow led all scorers with 25 points and nine rebounds.

“These past games, she’s been hitting those outside shots,” Tenino coach Brandi Thomas said. “She’s come a long way with being aggressive in the paint and knocking down free throws.”

Rochester led 16-8 after the first quarter, but Tenino responded and battled back in the second quarter to lead 27-23 at halftime.
The Warriors came out strong in the third quarter, outscoring Tenino 21-6 to lead 44-33. Tenino tried to comeback in the fourth quarter and outscored Rochester, but it wasn’t enough.

“They definitely hit a few 3s. They were really on. Everything they threw up went in and it seemed like we had a lid on our basket sometimes,” Thomas said. “They made some great adjustments down the stretch.”

Rochester (3-4) hosts Hudson’s Bay in a nonleague game Wednesday, while Tenino (3-4) hosts Rainier Wednesday at 7 p.m. in a boys-girls doubleheader.
Centralia Shuts Down Hoquiam, 46-32

Centralia held Hoquiam to 18 points in the first three quarters on Tuesday and cruised in a 46-32 nonleague girls basketball win.

Rachel Wilkerson led the Tigers with 12 points, and Ellie Corwin added 11 points, six rebounds and five blocked shots.

“Defensively I was really happy with it, but we really struggled offensively,” Centralia coach Doug Ashmore said, pointing out that the game was played with a special pink basketball as part of a Pink-Out breast cancer survivors’ fundraiser. “People would say you played with a pink ball, and all those excuses, but we had good looks at the hoop and just struggled offensively.”

The defense, though, held Hoquiam to 10 of 51 (19 percent) shooting to secure the win.

Danika Jensen added 4 points and seven rebounds, and Hannah Porter scored 7 for the Tigers.

Ashmore said he was also impressed with the bench play, citing Kylie Sharp, Kennedy Strophy and Makayla Erickson for their work in the win.

Centralia (5-2) hosts Olympic on Wednesday night.

Note: Tuesday’s contest was the Tigers’ annual Pink-Out game, played with a pink ball and featuring fundraisers for local breast cancer survivor (and former Tiger) Tess Danielson. The team raised $400 with a bake sale prior to the game, and additional fundraisers are planned for the near future.
W.F. West Hammers North Thurston

LACEY — The Bearcats came out fired up here Tuesday night, leading 48-19 at halftime in a 70-30 win over 3A North Thurston in nonleague girls hoops action.

Julia Johnson scored a game-high 18 points, while Kiara Steen added 12 for the Bearcats. Nine different players scored for W.F. West, which shot 29 of 59 (49 percent) from the field.

Johnson added three assists and three steals and went 2 of 4 from behind the 3-point arc.

Quinlan Christian led North Thurston with 15 points.

W.F. West (5-1) faces 3A Garfield (6-1) on Dec. 28 in the Anacortes holiday tournament, and faces hosts Anacortes in the same tournament on Dec. 29. Both games begin at 7 p.m.
