ANACORTES — Camryn Kerr scored a team-high 17 points and the Anacortes girls’ basketball team held its opponent to seven points in the second half Tuesday in a 59-24 win over Lakewood.
“We did a better job of controlling the tempo and upping our pressure,” Seahawks coach Nate Dunham said.
He said Alizee Hargrove played well and blocked several shots, and Lacie Petitclerc had an effective game distributing the ball.
Of the scoring from the freshman Kerr, he said “She got a lot of good buckets down low off offensive rebounds and good passes from the perimeter. She did a good job finishing.”
