The Indian girls played Grace at home on Saturday, Nov. 24, and won 52-48 despite starting off a bit slow against a talented small school.
Grace led at the end of the first quarter 13-6, but Preston came back strong taking a 25-18 lead at the break.
“They have a very good team despite being a small school,” said coach Belinda Taylor.
“They have size, talent and a good coach. We won by four, maintaining a lead in the second half, but fighting to keep it every second.
“We out-rebounded Grace 52-49 in a shootout. Anna White led scoring with 17 and Shania Carlisle added 13 and 17 rebounds.
“Katie Call battled from start to finish working to hold a great rebounder, Mackenzie Windley, off the boards. We played strong in the second and fourth quarters especially.
“We need to work on having a stronger start in the game and the second half.
“I’m really proud of the girls battling to finish on top in this game.”
Whitney Alder had four assists and four steals for Preston out of 16 for the team, as well as scoring one point. Call scored seven points in addition to her defense.
Britney Parker added four, Alexa VanVleet, four and Hannah Roberts, six.
Preston will travel to Bonneville on Thursday, Nov. 29, and Malad on Saturday, Dec. 1. Games will start at 4:30 p.m. (freshmen), 6 p.m. (JV), 7:30 p.m. (varsity).
The Indians return home on Wednesday, Dec. 5, to play against Rigby at 7:30 p.m. JV and freshmen will play at 6 p.m.
