HELIX, Ore. - Kylee Rogers scored 28 points to lead the Helix girls basketball team to a 58-24 victory in a Big Sky Conference matchup against Sherman County.

"Kylee has been red hot, really on a tear," Helix coach Dean Fouquette said. "She had a really good game tonight."

Meghan Schroeder finished with 13 points and 12 rebounds to help the Grizzlies.

"Schroeder works really hard every night for everything she gets," Fouquette said.

Claire Ely added nine points for Helix.

Helix won by 34 points against Sherman County, which is tied for third in the conference.

"We've been playing tough defense and running our motion offense well," Fouquette said. "We took the ball to the hoop a lot, got easy baskets with our good passing and played a good hal-court trap that has been succesful against almost everyone in the league."

Helix is now 19-5 overall and 11-3 in league.

"We got off to a 20-0 lead before they even scored," Fouquette said. "We have been stopping the ball with the half-court trap and encouraging them to toss the lazy pass over the top. It worked tonight. Sherman County must have had about 25 turnovers."

The Grizzlies finished in second place in the Big Sky East Division. They will play again in the opening round of the district tournament Thursday at 3 p.m. at the Umatilla High gym.

The top three teams advance to the state playoffs in the six-team, three-day tournament.
