Squalicum girls' basketball falls to Cedarcrest

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDDecember 2, 2013 

Despite winning the battle on the boards, Squalicum girls' basketball lost to Cedarcrest 65-49 on Monday, Dec. 2, at Cedarcrest High School in Duvall. The Storm was led by Meghan Lowry's 12 points in the effort.

"We just turned the ball over too many times," Squalicum coach Mark Wright said in a phone interview, as his team lost the ball 28 times to the Red Wolves' 17. "I was encouraged by the way we played faster and got to the rim."

Squalicum out-rebounded Cedarcrest 51-35, led by Shaunee Hooper's 10 boards. Hooper also had two points. Sarah Hulbert dished out four assists for the Storm. Sydney Arndorfer was second in scoring with nine points.

The Storm also suffered from a rough third quarter, in which they only managed five points.

"We scored ten seconds into the quarter, then only scored three points in the rest of the quarter," Wright said. "We out-rebounded them by a lot, we just have to score after that."

Squalicum's next game is at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, at La Conner High School.
