ATHENA — Molly von Borstel earned a double-double and Weston-McEwen raced out to a 34-15 halftime lead before cruising to a 56-41 victory over Elgin Saturday night in Blue Mountain Conference girls basketball.

von Borstel scored 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field and a 5-for-7 mark at the line. She pulled down 12 boards to complete the double-double. Makayla Christopher added 10 points and Taylor Rudolph added another nine.

“This was a win we needed and all players contributed,” W-M coach Amber Doremus said. “We jumped Elgin pretty early, scoring two buckets and a free throw in the first 10 seconds.”

Miah Slater had a double-double for the Huskies as well, scoring 13 points and making 12 rebounds. Katie Witherspoon led the Huskies with 14 points.

On Friday night the TigerScots (7-2) got 18 points from von Borstel and had two other players in double digits but came away with a 57-52 loss to Heppner.

Weston-McEwen plays in the D.A. Davidson Classic hosted by DeSales at Whitman College Thursday.
