Bear girls rout Kayhi

Juneau improves to 4-0 in region with series sweep

Posted: Sunday, February 22, 2004

The last unknown was no problem for the Juneau-Douglas High School girls basketball team over the weekend.

Junior Mary Rehfeld hit six 3-pointers and scored 29 points over two games as the Crimson Bears swept a Region V-Class 4A series against host Ketchikan, winning 58-41 on Friday and 49-22 on Saturday.

Juneau's remaining regular-season schedule is against teams it has already played - and beaten.

"Tonight we just did a really good job working the ball around and being patient," Juneau coach Lesslie Knight said after Saturday's game. "Our girls were relaxed."

The Crimson Bears (13-5 overall, 4-0 region) dominated the Kings with their trademark tenacity on defense Saturday.

After Kayhi posts Laura West and Katie Geldaker found scoring success on put-backs Friday, Juneau senior Heather Dillon was assigned to block them out on rebounds Saturday. Dillon did her job well, grabbing 10 boards while holding West and Geldaker to a combined two points.

Juneau senior Kendri Cesar helped shut down Ketchikan scoring threat Destiny Bell both nights. On Saturday, Bell wound up with a team-high 12 points, but eight of those were scored late after Cesar had left the game.

The Crimson Bears jumped out to a 26-12 halftime lead Saturday, and put the game away with an 11-2 edge in the third quarter. Freshman Talisa Rhea led Juneau with 14 points, while Rehfeld added 12 and Dillon scored seven.

On Friday, Juneau doused Ketchikan with a flood of nine 3-pointers. Rehfeld hit four on her way to a game-high 17 points, while Rhea sank three 3-pointers and finished with 12 points. Dillon and senior Nicole Lupro hit one 3-pointer apiece for Juneau.

"It was really balanced on the perimeter," Knight said. "If you're going to zone us, you have to take away multiple shooters."

Cesar had eight points and eight assists on Friday, while Rhea contributed six assists.

"We have some people doing a tremendous job distributing the ball," Knight said.

Juneau and Ketchikan each started slow on Friday - the score was 8-2 after the first quarter - and stayed even through the second period, with Juneau ahead 20-14 at the half.

Backed by three 3-pointers, the Crimson Bears notched an 18-14 edge in the third quarter before breaking away in the fourth.

Geldaker and West scored 12 points apiece to lead Ketchikan (12-6 overall, 2-4 region). Tori Edwardson added 10 points for the Kings.

Juneau's next games are at Sitka on Feb. 27-28. The Crimson Bears' final regular season games are at home against Ketchikan on March 5-6.

Juneau JV, C teams go 1-3

While the Juneau varsity rolled to victory, the Crimson Bear junior varsity and C teams struggled a bit in Ketchikan. The Juneau JV squad split with Kayhi, while the Juneau C team lost both its games.

On Saturday, Lexi Garvey netted nine points and Kate Potter added eight to lead the Crimson Bears JV squad to a 32-29 victory. Crystal Reno scored a game-high 11 points to lead the Kings.

Courtney Turner and Irene Pahang each scored eight points as the Ketchikan C team beat Juneau 45-25 on Saturday. Jessy Post scored eight points and Kerstin Kimlinger added seven to lead Juneau.

On Friday, Reno scored 14 points, including five in the fourth quarter, to lead the Kings JV squad to a 36-26 win. Garvey scored 12 points for Juneau.

Ketchikan's Heather Gatti scored 12 points to lead the Kings C team to a 52-28 win on Friday. Jessy Post scored seven points for Juneau.
