Kennewick girls end skid in Sunnyside

SUNNYSIDE -- It had been more than a month since Kennewick's last win.

The drought ended on the road against Sunnyside, as the Lions came out with a 46-32 CBBN 3A victory Saturday.

Kim Harrod had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Angelique Whistocken finished with 11 points and 17 rebounds to lead the Lions (3-10, 3-6) past the Grizzlies (0-15, 0-9).

Kennewick had won its first two conference games in mid-December against Pasco and Sunnyside before going on a six-game losing streak.

"I told the girls tonight, 'We control our destiny. ... We're young, and we have to believe in ourselves,' " Kennewick coach Tarah Staton said.

The Lions trailed by one at the end of the first quarter, then outscored the Grizzlies 18-11 in the second to pull away.

Ruby Herrera finished with 13 points for Sunnyside.

Staton hopes the Lions can break into the top half of the conference standings and battle for a playoff spot.

"It's one game at a time," Staton said. "We need to understand the big picture."
