Prep roundup: CHS girls basketball wins
RENO — It wasn’t artistic by any means, but the Carson High girls basketball team was happy to get into the win column.

Carson concludes the tournament today at 12:30 p.m. against Spring Creek.

South Tahoe led twice — 2-0 and 5-2. Carson led the rest of the way, and the closest the Vikings came was 17-13 with 2:36 left in the half after back-to-back 3-pointers by Drue Chapman and Zoe Mosedale. Neither team scored the rest of the half.
The Senators put together an 11-4 run to take a 28-20 lead with 2:37 left in the third quarter. Lauren Lemburg (team-leading 14 points) started the surge with a 3-pointer and Bella Kordonowy, after the teams traded turnovers, converted a three-point play to make it 23-15. After Brooke Erdody made it 23-17, Carson went on a 5-2 run sparked by Garver’s three-point play. Garver had two more buckets in the fourth quarter, the last of which extended Carson’s lead to 13, 36-23 with 4:03 left in the game.
Freshman Bella Kordonowy finished with 13 and Garver 10 for the Senators.

The two losses dropped Dayton to 0-4. The team concludes the tournament today with a single game.
“The girls played much better the second game,” coach Kelly Frantz. “We came out with more energy but we were missing shots and not rebounding. I was much happier with our intensity in the second game, and we started seeing some good movement on defense, something we hadn’t done the last couple of games.”
Elora Neep led Dayton against Lone Pine with 12 points and seven rebounds, and Jessie Ingham and Aleea McGill-Howe added seven each. Against Hawthorne. Neep scored 10 and grabbed four rebounds, and Abby Sikora contributed eight. Ingha had six steals and played well defensively.

After a 19-point 15-rebound performance against Mission, Allen came back with 42 points and 18 rebounds.
