Oroville girls fall to Chelan

OROVILLE – Despite absorbing a 33-point loss, Oroville girls basketball coach Mike Bourn was happier with his team’s performance Saturday, Dec. 8, than he was with the previous night’s two-point win over Tonasket.

“That’s a very, very good Chelan team,” he said. “Courtney Dietrich is 6-1 and they had a couple of other tall players, too. They were really fun to watch.”

The Hornets came out with greater intensity in the second half, Bourn said, and held Dietrich to just one basket after halftime despite her staying on the floor most of the game.

“Marissa Garcia did a great job defending her,” he said. “Brittany Jewett and Meagan Moralez came off the bench and gave us some good energy and Briana Moralez really worked hard all night.”

Callie Barker led the Hornets (3-2) with 10 points.
