ARLINGTON, Ore. — Helix rolled to its seventh straight Big Sky Conference girls basketball victory here Tuesday night, thumping Central Christian of Prineville 49-20 in a makeup game.

The game, originally scheduled Jan. 9 in Prineville, was rescheduled at Sherman County High in Moro Tuesday, but when that site became unavailable Central Christian agreed to make the trip here for the game.

"They were kind enough to come all the way from Prineville," Helix coach Dean Fouquette said. "I can’t believe they did it, actually."

Led by Chyanne Hack’s game-high 15 points and Meghan Schroeder’s 10 points and 14 rebounds, the Grizzlies improved to 7-3 in the Big Sky and 15-5 overall going into Friday night’s showdown with Nixyaawii on the Helix court. Nixyaawii leads the Big Sky’s Eastern Division with a 9-1 record while Helix and Ione are deadlocked for second place with 7-3 marks.

"We didn’t play our best," Fouquette said of Tuesday’s game. "It’s difficult playing inexperienced teams and staying focused, but we took care of business. Meghan played real hard and we moved the ball around."

Kylee Rogers also scored 10 points for the Grizzlies and Meghan Terjeson contributed eight points.

Rachael Hargreaves led Central Christian with 10 points and six rebounds.

Following Friday’s big game against Nixyaawii, the Grizzlies travel to Echo Saturday to face the fourth-place Cougars (5-3). They then close the regular season the following weekend at Ione and at home to Sherman County.

The top three teams from the Big Sky’s East and West divisions advance to the postseason.
