Ferndale girl's basketball tops Squalicum



Ferndale girls' basketball defeated Squalicum 69-36 on Friday, Dec. 6, at Squalicum High School. The Golden Eagles had three players score in double figures and used their size advantage to top the Storm.

"We were a little overwhelmed with Ferndale's defensive pressure," Squalicum coach Mark Wright said in a phone interview. "They're extremely athletic. ... I was impressed with their physicality."

Squalicum was led by Meghan Lowry's 13 points.

"Meghan is a warrior, she fights every night," Wright said. "She was our girl that gave us a chance out there. Lissette Meza also knocked down some three's and was a weapon against Ferndale's zone defense."
