The Sunnyside Christian High School JV girls basketball team may have only six players on its roster, but they apparently know how to win.
The JV Lady Knights opened the 2004-05 season with a pair of victories against the Liberty Christian and Kittitas junior varsity squads.
In its season debut, behind a 20-point effort from Jacqui Roberts, the SCHS squad prevailed 53-33. Emma Newhouse added a double-digit scoring performance for the winners, tossing in 12 points. Also scoring for the Lady Knights were Brittany den Hoed with 9 points, Andrea Schutt with 8 and Chelsea Jones with 4 points.
This past Tuesday the JV Lady Knights crushed Kittitas, 73-36. Scorers included den Hoed with 23 points, Newhouse with 17, Jones with 13, Roberts with 12, Schutt with 6 and Jenna Van Beek with 2 points.
In explaining the lopsided win over Kittitas, SCHS Coach Steve Martin said the Coyotes kept pressing, "...so we just kept playing.
"Getting two road wins was a good way to start the season," Martin added.
