RICHLAND — Wa-Hi’s Jamie Weisner scored 30 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and dished out four assists here Friday night — and her all-around performance enabled the Blue Devils to defeat Big Nine Conference opponent Richland 53-47 in the Bombers’ gym.

"Jamie is capable of playing that way every game," Wa-Hi coach Jill Meliah said. "She has been scoring every game, and tonight she put together a complete game with the rebounds."

Weisner scored 12 of her 30 points in the fourth quarter as the Blue Devils outscored Richland 23-13 to erase a 34-30 Bombers lead after three periods.

"The last few games, Weisner had taken over in the fourth," Meliah said. "Tonight, she was consistent throughout."

In the fourth, Wa-Hi outscored Richland 23-13, to get the six-point win.

"We had great team defense tonight," Meliah said. "We also ran a good team offense to get those shots for Weisner."

Wa-Hi outrebounded Richland 38-32 in the game.

"It was a huge win for us," Meliah said. "We played four quarters tonight. Hopefully that will carry over for us (Saturday) and in the rest of the season."

The win improved the Blue Devils to 6-5 overall and 3-2 in conference going into Saturday’s game at Chiawana.
