Soldotna girls top Oregon squad

The Soldotna girls basketball team started play at the SoCal Holiday Prep Classic on Thursday with a 59-34 victory over Gladstone High School, which is just outside of Portland, Oregon.

Soldotna head coach Kyle McFall texted that his team got off to a slow start, which was kind of expected. The Stars had not practiced since Monday and had been doing a lot of traveling. In the second half, Soldotna found its footing and outscored Gladstone 41-22.

Ituau Tuisaula paced Soldotna with 22 points, including 12 in the second half. Drysta Crosby-Schneider had 10 for the Stars, while Josie Sheridan and Kiana Holland had seven points apiece. Also for the Stars, Morgan Bouschor had six, Autumn Fischer had five and Mikayla Leadens had two.

The Stars continu e play at the tournament today with a game against Valhalla High School. The Soldotna boys also are in action with a 3 p.m. game against North Pole at the Capital City Classic in Juneau.

Saturday, the SoHi girls play Patrick Henry (California) while the SoHi boys face Haines in a 3 p.m. matchup.
