LACROSSE — Touchet’s girls evened their Southeast 1B record at 2-2 with a pair of wins over the weekend.

The Indians, now 3-2 overall, won at Lacrosse-Washtucna, 45-25, on Saturday after a 65-51 home victory over Pomeroy on Friday.

Cierra Jo McKeown was the star of the weekend. She scored 34 points against Pomeroy and followed it up with 22 versus L-W.

Kristin Warner led Touchet with 17 rebounds on Saturday. Warner and McKeown had 11 boards apiece against the Pirates.

“The girls are catching on,” Touchet coach Missy McKeown said. “We’re getting better game by game. We’re getting a little confidence and our play is showing it.”

“Cierra Jo opens things up,” McKeown said. “If they (opponents) come out on her, it opens up the inside.”

Touchet plays Friday at Garfield-Palouse before hosting St. John-Endicott on Saturday.
