Kamiakin girls win a tough one at Chiawana

By the Tri-City HeraldDecember 15, 2012 

Road games can be tough, but the Kamiakin Braves weren’t fazed Saturday when they traveled to Chiawana.

Courtney Nelson scored 19 points, leading four Braves in double figures in a 63-49 victory over the Riverhawks.

Sira Toure scored 15 for Kamiakin, while Melanie Oord had 12 and Lindsey Schauble finished with 10.

“Everyone knows about Courtney and Sira, but it’s nice to have Melanie and Schauble in double figures,” Kamiakin coach Lane Schumacher said. “We’re pretty well rounded. You can’t concentrate on two scorers.”

After its eight-point third quarter, Kamiakin outscored Chiawana 24-11 in the final period.

The Braves also were frequent visitors to the free-throw line, making 25 of 32 foul shots.

“They are very physical on the defensive end, and we were fortunate to take care of the basketball and get those fouls,” Schumacher said.

Bianca Gonzales led Chiawana with 17 points, and Delaney Hodgins contributed 16.
