|Women win in Everett, set sights on
Almost halfway through the season the women’s basketball team will be looking forward for the rest of the season with their current overall record of 1-14 and 0-1 in the league.
Their lone win was in the Everett Tournament against the South Puget Sound Clippers on Dec. 4, 67-51, with Attleberger having a stellar game with 20 points, 23 rebounds, and three blocked shots.
Their lack of wins doesn’t mean that there is a lack of effort.
As of Dec. 17 in the Southern Region Conference, sophomore forward Kristen Tillstrom was fourth in scoring with 115 points, averaging 16.4 per game. Attleberger is fourth in rebounding with 44, averaging 6.3, and she’s third in blocks with seven, averaging one per game.
Even though they are last in the Southern Region, the team is a “work in progress,” according to sophomore guard/forward Brittany Grizzard.
“The season’s progressing. We’ve learned a lot and have come a long way from the beginning of the season,” said sophomore guard Dede Sonnis. “We are working much better together.”
“We just started our league season,” said Grizzard, “It’s almost like starting over.” The first half of the season consisted mostly of non-league tournaments. The Saints remaining games will be against teams from the Southern Region.
