Lady Hatchets defeat the Wildcats

The Washington Lady Hatchets improved to 3-1 in the conference and 8-1 overall by defeating Mt. Vernon on Saturday, 69-53.

The lady hatchets got off to another quick start by taking the lead in the first quarter 17-5. The Wildcats did not go away quietly. The scoring in the final three quarters were pretty even by both teams.

The Lady Hatchets out rebounded Mt. Vernon 25-14, which is much improved over the last few games. They continue to share the ball very well while having 18 teams assists on the day.

“We rebounded much better as a team on both ends of the floor. Rebounding is effort and that is one of the stat columns that we look at to know that the hardest workers are going to be your top rebounders most of the time, and as a team we improved in that area a great deal,” said WHS coach Gretchen Miles.

“This was another game when the players did their role to put the team in a position to win. It is great to see the team assist stat be at a high number and that also means that we are finishing the passes off. Ally (Hunsinger) and Lupe (Perez) had a tremendous floor game, where they were putting the ball where it needed to go in order for us to get a high percentage shot, and they also hit shots that were key for us around the perimeter.

The Lady Hatchets were led in scoring by Cheyenne Jones with 17 points and 6 rebounds, Hunsinger with 16 points and 7 assists, Lupe Perez with 12 points and 5 assists, Audra Stallman with 9 points and 6 rebounds, Carrie Lane 9 points, Jenna Johnson 4 points and 5 rebounds, and Shawna Webb with 2 points.

“Cheyenne continues to be a force for us inside and finishing well around the basket and working hard on the boards. Ally and Chey had a variety of opportunities where they worked together to get good scores for us.
