T-Birds go 1-2 in tournament
By Konner Hancock - Staff Reporter
The Highline women's basketball team wins their first game in the Bellevue tournament.
The lady T-Birds traveled to Bellevue on Dec. 2, 3 and the 4 where they faced off against several teams starting with the loss to the 6-0 Lane Titans, 66-46, then the win against the 0-4 Everett Trojans 58-55 and their final game resulted in a loss against the 5-1 Skagit Valley Cardinals 72-57.
"We had good intensity and effort but we still need to fix quite a few things and I think we can improve if we work," said Head Coach Amber Mosley.
The team was led in scoring by wing Aileen Kaye, 11 points and guard Alicia Westbrook 10 points.
The T-Birds were also led in rebounding by forward Jasmine Hansgen with 12 rebounds.
However, in the two other games Highline struggled defensively, said Mosley.
Against Lane, Highline earned no points off any turnovers and only seven points off turnovers when they were faced off against Skagit Valley compared to their 22.
The T-Birds are usually solid on defense but they struggled. Highline will continue to improve our play.
