SPOKANE — DeSales finished the District 7/9 girls basketball tournament on a high note Saturday, defeating St. George’s 50-37 behind 18 points from Allison Wujek, 14 from Teresa Acock and 13 from Emily Baumgart to claim third place.

The Irish downed Lind-Ritzville-Sprague Friday night, 53-44, but lost a shot at a tournament title earlier this week with a loss to Colfax on Monday.

DeSales now moves on to a regional tournament — date, location and opponent to be determined.

Wujek added eight rebounds while Acock nailed four 3-pointers in Saturday’s win.

“We played really well,” DeSales coach Tim Duncan said. “Everybody executed on both sides of the ball, offensively and defensively. It is our goal every year to be playing our best basketball this team of the year and right now, we are right there.”

Against L-R-S, DeSales was efficient with the ball, committing just 14 turnovers to 16 assists.

Wujek scored 23 points to lead the Irish, also grabbing six rebounds, and Acock scored 12 points to go with eight assists.

“Wujek was fantastic all weekend,” Duncan said. “Lind-Ritzville had a very tall team all around and Allison (Wujek) dominated them. Her teammates did a great job of finding her, especially Teresa (Acock).”
