Thunderbirds Use Balanced Attack to Top Warriors


Four Tumwater players scored in double digits and the Thunderbirds romped to a 79-21 road victory over Rochester in a 2A Evergreen Conference.

Our girls played against one of the best teams of the state and they battled with them despite the score,” Rochester coach Davina Serdahl said. “They were not afraid and did not back down, and for that I am proud of them.”

Aubrey Amendala led all scorers with 17 points, while Isabella Lund added 16 and Kylie Waltermeter and Natalie Sumrok each finished with 12.

Tumwater jumped out to a 15-8 run to start the game and held the Warriors to single-digit points in all four quarters to claim their third-straight win.

The Warriors were led by junior Roisin Stull’s 10 points and five rebounds, while Sofie Sand added three points and six boards.

“Roisin Stull was fearless and a force tonight, and had her best game of the season,” Serdahl said. “Sofie Sand and Delany Winter also played strong in the paint.”

Rochester (1-7, 1-5 EvCo) heads to Centralia on Tuesday for another league matchup.

Tumwater (11-1, 5-0 EvCo) hosts Burlington-Edison in a non-league matchup at 12:30 p.m. on Monday.
