MILTON-FREEWATER — Mac-Hi had four players score in double figures en route to a 61-19 victory over the Helix Grizzlies here Tuesday night in a non-league girls’ basketball game.

“It is always nice to get the first win out of the way,” Mac-Hi coach Nicole Christian said. “Especially since we didn’t have much success last season.”

Post Makia Carlson led all scorers with 17 points, while Pioneer starters Mackenzie Fite and Avery Wells added 11 and 13, respectively. Toree Correa added 12 points off the bench.

“Last year, we had maybe one girl score in double figures all game long,” Christian said. “So it was nice to see everybody looking to shoot and score. We moved the ball really well tonight and the shots were falling. I told the girls that this is the best that I’ve ever seen them play.”

The Grizzlies had trouble scoring, making only five field goals and missing 20 free throws. Helix was 9-for-29 from the charity stripe while being fouled 26 times.

Carlson and Sabrina Glaeser led the Pioneers in rebounds with seven apiece. Mac-Hi grabbed 42 total boards with 20 of them being offensive rebounds.

Mac-Hi had 19 team assists, with Caitlin Vaughn leading with eight.

“We still need to work on eliminating our turnovers,” Christian said. “We had 25 tonight, which is better than last year, but we still could take that number down. We will have to keep getting better because the competition against bigger schools will get tougher.”

The Pioneers play at home Thursday against Walla Walla Valley Academy at 6 p.m.
