Prep Roundup: Carson High girls win, boys lose
TRACY, Calif. — Lily Bouza and Lauren Lemburg combined for 40 points to lead Carson High’s girls basketball team to a 50-45 win over Enochs at the Tracy Tournament on Thursday night.
Bouza led the team with 23 points and Lemburg added 17. Bella Kordonowy had six points and 13 rebounds.
“We used our speed to attack the basket,” Carson coach Melissa Larsen said. “There were only a couple of times where we were outrebounded.”
Carson trailed 25-21 at the half, but the Senators continued to attack the basket. With 1:13 left in the game, Carson converted three drives to the basket, and that was the difference.
Carson returns to action Friday at 8 needing a win to make the finals.
LOVELOCK — Dayton hit just 11-of-45 from the floor, missing many inside shots on its way to a 36-24 loss to Lovelock. Taryn Houston scored 14 points for Lovelock.
“We played pretty good on defense,” Dayton coach Kelly Frantz said. “I really think (Lovelock) is solid, well-balanced, well-coached team.
Abby Sikora led Dayton with 12 points.
“Abby is very consistent on defense and can get in position to score outside the perimeter for us on offense,” Frantz said. “She has really stepped up on her ball handling and has gained confidence on driving the lane.”
Tamia Powell and Hannah Coltrin each had 4 points and Powell had 5 rebounds and 7 steals while Coltrin grabbed 10 rebounds for the Dust Devils.
“I think we took a quarter too long to calm down and start taking care of the ball and once we started putting up points, we played much stronger,” Frantz said.

Carson returns to action Friday at 5 in the consolation bracket.
“We played three good quarters and one not so good,” Carson coach Jordan Glover. “They were very athletic. They would beat 80 percent of the teams in Reno.
“We came out a little stagnant in the first quarter and they got a 10-point lead. It was even after that. We got in some foul trouble. Trent (Robison) was in foul trouble and so was Jonny (Randall).”
Carson tied the game early in the second half at 32, but was unable to sustain the momentum.
Derek Barry led Carson with 19 points and Robison added 17.
