Winning its first game of the season, the Morton-White Pass girls basketball team made some strong adjustments and created chances based on a strong defense in a 51-26 win over Stevenson Saturday.
The Timberwolves (1-3) started in a high-pressure man defense, but switched to a trapping zone in the second quarter, to great success. The T-Wolves outscored the Bulldogs 21-6 in the second frame.
We started out slow,” T-Wolves coach Curt Atkinson said. “We’re still young, but we’re moving the ball and hitting our passes. I’m pleased with how we’re playing so far.”
The Timberwolves were led by McKenzee Mays 16 points, and Keira Miller and Natalie Armstrong were also in double figures with 15 and 10 points, respectively.
