Sprague takes a shot on Aussies

Clatskanie’s Olivia Sprague shoots against the Australian team. 

The Lady Tigers are 3-2 overall in non-league play this season, ranked seventh in the 3A division. Clatskanie took three in a row this past week, besting Portland Adventist Academy, Amity, and an exhibition team from Australia. The team travels to Yamhill on Dec. 13.

Head coach John Blodgett said against PAA, the girls played a strong first half, troubling the PAA offense with their press. Clatskanie played a bit sloppy in the second half, but everyone got some quality minutes on the court. Blodgett said the Australia victory was a good win against a long, athletic team, highlighting performances by Olivia Sprague and Shelby Blodgett.

“We were pretty solid offensively, but we still are trying to find our defensive identity,” the coach said.

Facing Amity, the Lady Tigers executed well on offense, but defensively gave up too many uncontested 3’s. But they are getting better each game in defensive rotations. Kaity Sizemore posted her first double double in the Amity game.
