Yost's big night fuels Baker girls in win


Emily Yost bounced back from a two-point performance Friday with 31 points and 15 rebounds in a 58-42 Mount Baker girl's basketball win over Sehome on Monday, Jan. 13, at Mount Baker.

"It was good for her (to bounce back)," Mount Baker coach Brenda Ellis said in a phone interview of Yost's prolific game. "For her, she had to prove something (to herself)."

In this Northwest Confernce matchup, the Mountaineers held Sehome's leading scorer Maddy Bryan to just six points with its trap defense. Megan Bayless and Devin Grahn each had nine points for the Mariners (0-12, 0-4 NWC).

Emily Brandland added 11 points for Mount Baker (6-6, 2-2 NWC).

Mount Baker plays next at 7:15 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, at home against Sedro-Woolley. Sehome will look to pick up its first win at 7:15 p.m. Monday, Jan. 20, at home against Blaine.
