Pirates Move to 2-0 With Win Over Eagles


In its second win of the season, the Adna girls basketball team defeated 1A Elma at home Friday night, 76-24, led by a well-rounded scoring effort.

The Pirates led 57-8 at the half, and shot nearly 50% in the win with 23 assists as a team, led by Danika Hallom’s team-high six. 

“Overall we came out in the first quarter and jumped on them,” Pirates coach Chris Bannish said. “We were able to get up and pressure really well with the athletes we have, but the biggest thing is we convert turnovers into points. We have a big test with Rainier on Wednesday, but we’re playing the style we want to play and we’re sharing the ball really well. If they’re all scoring 8-12, it's really hard to defend that.”

Karlee VonMoos and Gaby Guard co-led the Pirates with 18 points a piece, and Brooklyn Loose also chipped in 13 to round out double-digit scorers. 

The Pirates test their mettle next Wednesday against Rainier in a big contest against a league opponent.
