WAITSBURG - Waitsburg-Prescott senior Dionna Baker scored 15 points to lead W-P's girls to a 54-27 triumph over Walla Walla Valley Academy in Southeast 2B play here Tuesday night.

Emily Field led the Knights' scoring with 10 points and also grabbed four rebounds, and Kristianna Buell threw in another seven points.

Baker's teammate Ronnie Hulce added 13 points and 12 rebounds, with Kristin Potter finishing off the double-digit scorers for the game with 12 points.

"(Waitsburg-Prescott) played such a swarming defense that the hesitation put us into trouble," WWVA assistant coach Lloyd Redberg said. "But we played hard until the end."

"I thought it was a pretty good game," W-P coach Jerry Baker said. "There was a lot better ball handling tonight, but we still have a few things to work on."

"When you give a team like Waitsburg-Prescott a chance, it makes it hard," said Redberg.

The game started with Hulce getting the tipoff and W-P taking an early lead against the Knights to end the first quarter with a nine-point lead.

W-P continued on a shooting spree that ended the first half with a 19-point lead, 32-13.

W-P outscored the Knights 22-14 in the second half to pick up the easy victory.

WWVA's girls, 5-6 overall and 1-6 in SE2B action, play at Dayton on Thursday. W-P, 11-3 overall and 5-2 in league, hosts Asotin Saturday.
