EAST WENATCHEE -- A trio of Wa-Hi Blue Devil girls tallied double figures here Saturday night in Big Nine Conference Cascade Division basketball action with Eastmont.

Jamie Weisner scored 15 points, Jill McDaniels added 14 and Vicki Reardon chipped in with 12 during a 63-45 victory that raised Wa-Hi's records to 2-0 in league and 4-1 overall.

McDaniels was 5-of-9 from the field and drained 4-of-5 tries from outside the arc. Reardon secured a game-high 10 rebounds.

The Blue Devils led 19-10 after one quarter and 27-19 at halftime.

"Every team is going to make a run," Wa-Hi coach Jill Meliah said. "I thought if we could hold them to under 10 points in the second quarter, we could survive their run and get back on our game plan.

"Defensively, we played really well," Meliah said. "We ran down some balls and had great rebounding."

Wa-Hi outscored Eastmont 23-22 in the middle two periods before putting the game out of reach with a 21-13 fourth quarter.

"We got into a little bit of foul trouble and our continuity was off a little bit," Meliah said. "In the fourth quarter, they were trying to be aggressive. We made the extra pass to get the open shot.

"Jill shot the lights out," she said. "Alicia (Baker) got past a lot of people and created a lot.

"Overall, this was our best team win," Meliah said. "We had good minutes from our kids off the bench. In the past, we've struggled (on the Eastmont and Wenatchee road trips). That makes this win even better for us."

The Blue Devils' next action is at the North Idaho College tournament Dec. 28-30.
