High School Basketball

Would offense or defense play the bigger factor in Squalicum’s quest to stay perfect?

The Squalicum girls basketball has yet to lose a game so far this season as the Storm beat Meadowdale 46-26 Wednesday at Squalicum High School.

Chalae Wolters had a game-high 24 points while Leah Austin tallied 13 rebounds. Austin snagged 16 boards in the Storm’s previous game.

But the tale of the night was Squalicum’s defense as the Storm allowed only two points in the first quarter and held the Mavericks to below double-digit scoring in all but the final quarter.

“It was just a great defensive effort,” Squalicum coach Vic Wolffis said. “We had great communication and movement which allowed us to build a lead.”
