DAYTON - The Bulldogs' Garett Turner pumped in 47 points in two victories at the Dayton Christmas Classic here Thursday and Friday against Kiona-Benton and Lacrosse-Washtucna, to take home the first-place trophy.

The score against Ki-Be was 67-49, and versus L-W 66-30.

Over the weekend, Turner surpassed 1,000 points in his Dayton Bulldog career.

"For us, it was neat for Turner to surpass the milestone," Dayton coach Roy Ramirez said. "We always talk about team accomplishments and team goals, but it was nice to see him get the 1,000 points."

Colton Bickelhaupt added nine points in each game in the tournament to help support Turner's scoring efforts. Kroft Sunderland added 14 points in the tournament. Joey Schlacter had a combined 19 points in the two games.

"We shot the ball real well this weekend," Ramirez said. "We worked the ball inside and got some good shots inside. We took advantage of what they would give us."

In the two games, the Bulldogs were 52-of-122, or 42 percent, from the field.

Dayton's record is still undefeated at 9-0 and 2-0 in league.

The Bulldogs play again at Walla Walla Valley Academy on Thursday.
