Lummi can't quite keep up with Highland Christian


Lummi's girls' basketball team took a step forward but couldn't overcome Highland Christian in a 37-23 loss Thursday, Feb. 6, at Highland Christian. Treena Humphreys led the Blackhawks with 12 points.

"We struggled in the first half to get on the same page, but in the second we played better defense throughout," Lummi coach Randy Kaui said in a phone interview.

Kaui said fouls hurt the Blackhawks as they had 19. Harley Ellenwood had five points and Issabella James added four.

"Carla Lawrence played great defense, Harley played good defense," Kaui said of his team's effort. "Treena (Humphreys) was attacking the rim, so it's good to see shes healthy again."

Lummi takes on Tulalip Heritage at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, at Tulalip.
