Van Wingerden leads Knights to win over Yakama Tribal


Sunnyside Christian's Melanie Van Wingerden eyes the basket en route to scoring 25 points for the Lady Knights in last night's match-up against Yakama Tribal.

Sunnyside Christian's Melanie Van Wingerden was on fire last night, leading the Lady Knights to a 67-22 win over Yakama Tribal.

"When she gets that look in her eyes, she's pretty hard to stop," said Sunnyside Christian Coach Al Smeenk.

Van Wingerden was 12-for-12 shooting from the field and had a free throw, garnering 25 points for the Lady Knights. She also had five rebounds.

It was a game where everybody played and all but one Lady Knight scored. Andrea Shutt was also in double digits last night with 10 points.

The Lady Knights started the game with a full court press, which Smeenk said they needed to practice. "It created a couple of turnovers, but we made a few mistakes and they (Yakama Tribal) got a couple shots off of that."

The Lady Knights square off at home against Lyle this coming Friday night and travel to Trout Lake/Glenwood on Saturday.
