Holmes hurt in win at Wooster

Steve Yingling, Tribune sports editor

South Tahoe High’s second win of the Sierra Division girls’ basketball season on Tuesday night may have come at a costly price.

The Vikings held off Wooster 49-47 in Reno, but senior point guard Alexis Holmes suffered an undetermined injury to her lower leg in the closing minute.

“It was a good win, but we’ll see about Alexis,” said STHS coach Chris Holmes, whose daughter nearly recorded a triple double against the Colts. Alexis Holmes had 12 points, nine assists and eight rebounds.

“She’s really grown into her point guard role, sacrificing her offense to get other people involved,” coach Holmes said.

Terra Backinger led the Vikings with 17 points.

Vikings’ senior Alexis Nunes-Fenley made two crucial foul shots at the end, and Wooster’s final shot became wedged between the backboard and rim.
