Rough start, tough loss for Summit girls’ basketball

FARMER’S KORNER – For nine straight possessions in the first quarter, it was the same thing: Evergreen put on a full-court press, and the Tigers turned the ball over.

By the time the Summit High girls’ basketball team finally scored a point – a free thrown by senior Emmy Anderson – the game was already slipping away.

The Tigers trailed 18-1 after the first quarter and never rebounded in a 53-33 loss at home Tuesday against Evergreen High School.

Anderson led Summit with 10 points on the night, while junior Jessica Malknecht scored eight.

After the rough start, the Tigers settled in for the rest of the game and, in the second half, matched Evergreen basket for basket. Summit scored 23 points in the final two quarters, getting buckets from six different players.

Senior Davia Carr chipped in five points for the Tigers.

The Tigers (5-9, 1-5) are back on the court Friday when they travel to take on Valor Christian at 7 p.m.
