Washington JV girls rally, but fall short against West Branch
Washington rallied in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s junior varsity girls’ basketball game against visiting West Branch, but the Demons came up just short in a 32-29 loss.
Washington (3-6) struggled offensively in the contest, and shot just 15 percent from the field.
“We just didn’t hit shots,” Washington head coach Jay Zieglowsky said. “We couldn’t throw the ball in the ocean. Our shooting percentage was terrible.”
The Demons trailed 25-8 after three quarters. Washington began to heat up in the fourth quarter, making four 3-pointers in the period, but it was too late.
Sophomore Dylann Schluetter scored 13 points to lead the Demons, and she also had four rebounds, two steals and two assists.
“Schluetter had a really good week,” Zieglowsky said. “She’s played well here lately. She’s a good shooter, and she’s been deadly from the free-throw line. She was 9-for-9 on the weekend from the free-throw line.”
Sophomore Elle Van Gundy added five points and three steals for Washington, and sophomore Rachael Hall had four points. Freshman Brynna DeLong scored three points, and freshman Morgan Kimball had two. Sophomores Sydney Hoffman and Jordan Stout chipped in one point apiece, and Hoffman also pulled down three rebounds.
