MILTON-FREEWATER — It took a barrel full of 3-pointers (twice as fun as monkeys), but Mac-Hi picked up its second win of the year Tuesday.

The Pioneers hit 11 3s en route to a 76-45 victory over visiting Waitsburg-Prescott in a non-league boys basketball matchup.

“We shot the ball extremely well from the outside tonight, especially in the first half,” Mac-Hi coach Travis Chester said. “As a team we were 9-of-12 from behind the arc in the first half. That really set the tone for the game for us tonight.”

Saul Ortiz led the Pioneers with 15 points on five field goals, all from beyond the arc. Carlos Angel scored 14 on five field goals and a free throw, and Jeremy Ley had 12 points.

Owen Lanning led Waitsburg-Prescott with 16 points. Seth Deal hit three 3s en route to 13 points.

Mac-Hi visits Ontario Saturday.
