MILTON-FREEWATER - Kaitlin Erm led the Mac-Hi Pioneers' girl's basketball team with a total of eight 3-pointers in two losses this weekend, first on Friday against Grant Union and Saturday versus Pilot Rock.
A combined 50 turnovers in the two games caused the Pioneers to lose 50-17 to Pilot Rock and 53-29 to Grant Union.
"We had a lot of turnovers," Mac-Hi coach Nicole Christian said, "which didn't help because we went through stretches where we didn't get to shoot much. Other times we didn't shoot well."
Erm had a total of 31 points in the two games to led Mac-Hi's offense.
"A lot of Erm's shots dropped," Christian said. "She is one of our better outside shooters and other girls didn't shoot quite as well."
McKayla Carlson had a good game against Grant Union scoring ten points and grabbing nine rebounds. Carlson suffered through foul trouble and eventually fouled out the game against Pilot Rock.
Cheyenne Kessler of Mac-Hi had five points total in the two games and only the three girls scored in the two games on Mac-Hi's roster.
Pilot Rock bombed away from downtown in the Friday night games connecting on four 3's, two by Caitlin Zyph.
Mac-Hi out-rebounded Pilot Rock 20-13 and were out-rebounded by Grant Union 17-16.
