Shorthanded Riverhawks Come Up Just Short of Chinooks


Starting several eighth-graders due to injury, the Toledo girls basketball team hung around with Kalama but fell at home in Central 2B play, 37-32, Wednesday night. 

The Riverhawks trailed 24-12 at the halftime break, and outscored Kalama 12-1 in the fourth, but fell just short with a depleted varsity roster. 

“Injury bug hit us hard this week,” Toledo coach Randy Wood said. “We started a couple of eighth-graders that played real well.”

Freshman Ryah Stanley led the way with 16 points, and eighth-grader Kailea Lairson-Young added 6 points and 12 rebounds, with fellow eighth-grader Payton Holter adding four more big points. 

Senior Abbie Marcil didn’t score but hauled in 11 rebounds for Toledo.

The Riverhawks take on rival Winlock on Friday in another league contest.
