Girls basketball routs Sequim

The girls basketball team defeated Sequim 74-31 in Terry Lande’s debut as Bainbridge head coach Tuesday.

“We were more worried about how to do warm-ups than the game,” Lande said. “It was a whole new pre-game ritual, so there was lots of anxiety about all the stuff before the tip-off.”

But the Spartans found their stride early on, allowing Lande to go to his bench after just three minutes of play.

“A lot of kids played a lot of minutes,” Lande said. “Nine kids played in every quarter.”

The Spartans led 40-14 at the half, and outscored the Wolves 22-4 in the third quarter.

“We had very few turnovers, and we created some turnovers,” Lande said. “Our kids ran and they had fun.”

Seniors Rebecca Sharar and Kas Totura and freshman Grace Kenyon scored 14 points apiece.

Lande credits his reserves for their solid play.

“Mallory Farrar came off the bench and gave us some great defensive minutes,” Lande said. “We depend on our bench, both this year and in the future.”

The Spartans face Tumwater in their next contest at 5 p.m. Saturday.

“We’re going to play some teams when you get to 3A who are pressing, so we need to get our feet on the ground to handle that.”
