Spartan girls sweep

Pine-Eagle’s girls basketball team ran its season record to 11-1 last week by sweeping two games each at tournaments at Wallowa and Elgin.

At Wallowa, the Spartans defeated Nixyaawii 54-42 and Trinity Lutheran JV 51-27.

At Elgin, Pine-Eagle topped Huntington 44-24 and Elgin 48-43.

On a negative note, Pine-Eagle coach said the Spartans lost Jamie Butler for the season with a torn ACL in her knee. Butler injured the knee against Tri-Valley, Idaho, just before Christmas.


Pine-Eagle 54, Nixyaawii 42

Pine-Eagle completed a three-game sweep of the Golden Eagles in December.

The Spartans got off to a 10-6 start after one period, and led 26-15 at halftime.

“We got off to a good start then had a solid second quarter,” Gulick said. “We kind of put them away right there.”

Chelsie Gulick led the Spartans with 23 points. Bri Thatcher added 15.


Pine-Eagle    10    16    14    14    — 54

Three-point goals — Gulick 3, Barkley 3, Ostrom 2. Fouled out — none. Total fouls — Pine-Eagle 7, Nixyaawii 13. Technicals — none.


Pine-Eagle 51, Trinity Lutheran JV 27

The Spartans had no trouble against the new high school from Bend.

“They’re a young team, and don’t have much experience,” Gulick said.

Chelsie Gulick again led Pine-Eagle with 13 points. Maddie Thatcher added 12.


Pine-Eagle    12    15    15    9    — 51

Trinity Lutheran JV    5    7    6    9    — 27

Pine-Eagle (51) — Gulick 13, Terjeson 1, B. Thatcher 7, Pallan 1, Carr 6, M. Thatcher 12, Davis, Simrell 8, Digges 1, Thompson, Saunders. Totals 20 11-12 51.

Trinity Lutheran JV (27) — No individual scoring available. Totals 12 0-4 27.

Three-point goals — none. Fouled out — none. Total fouls — Pine-Eagle 9, Trinity Lutheran JV 19. Technicals — none.


Pine-Eagle 44, Huntington 24

Pine-Eagle defeated the Locomotives for the second time in December, playing the starters limited minutes.

“We jumped out 12-0 in the first 1:30 and didn’t even use our press,” Gulick said.

“Our younger kids played probably three-quarters of the game.”

Chelsie Gulick led Pine-Eagle with 14 points, and Maddie Thatcher scored 10.


Pine-Eagle    18    8    14    4    — 44

Huntington    3    5    7    9    — 24

Pine-Eagle (44) — Gulick 14, Terjeson, B. Thatcher 4, Pallan, Carr, M. Thatcher 10, Davis 6, Simrell 2, Digges 3, Thompson 4, Saunders 1. Totals 21 2-7 44.

Huntington (24) — King 6, Mascall 5, Reed 9, Wiley 4, Guerre, Harmon, Suitter, Marlin. Totals 10 1-6 24.

Three-point goals — Reed 2. Fouled out — none. Total fouls — Pine-Eagle 7, Huntington 7. Technicals — none.


Pine-Eagle 48, Elgin 43

Pine-Eagle took a quick 18-9 lead in the first quarter and was never really  threatened.

“We came out of the gate flying,” Gulick said.

He noted that the Spartans had traveled 818 miles in four days for the tournament games, then had to fight foul trouble against the Huskies.

“We were up 14 to 16 points the whole game then in the fourth quarter I think fatigue started to get us and we quit running,” Gulick said.

Elgin got to within four points late, but Chelsie Gulick and Bri Thatcher then went 4-for-4 from the free throw line in the final 30 seconds to ice the win.

Bri Thatcher led the Spartans with 17 points. Maddie Thatcher added 13.

Pine-Eagle opens Old Oregon League play at home Friday and Saturday. Friday the Spartans host Powder Valley, then Saturday they host Joseph.


Pine-Eagle    18    10    12    8    — 48

Elgin (43) —  Strickland 10, Sowers 10, Luce 5, Anderson, Bottiger, Smith 8, Reed 6, Lathrop 2, Weatherspoon. Totals 14 9-14 43.

Three-point goals — Gulick, B. Thatcher, Strickland 3, Reed. Fouled out — Carr, Lathrop. Total fouls — Pine-Eagle 17, Elgin 14. Technicals — none.
