Back-to-back games take toll on STHS
December 3, 2003
Tribune staff report
The South Tahoe High girls’ basketball team lost to Spanish Springs 45-29 on Tuesday night as the Vikings fell off the pace in the fourth quarter.
Senior point guard Tiffany Pinson was South Tahoe’s leading scorer with nine points, as the Vikings committed 30 turnovers. Post player Lindsey Caven has nine rebounds for South Tahoe.
Spanish Springs’ Jessica Welch had a game-high 13 points to go with seven rebounds, while Macy Magstadt pitched in with 10 points for the Cougars.
The Vikings trailed 29-22 after three quarters, but the combination of having played the previous night and Spanish Springs’ strong fastbreak led to the lopsided score.
“The fourth quarter was the key, obviously,” South Tahoe head coach Chris Proctor said. “We were hanging with them until then, but we just ran out of gas.”

The Warriors started slow under the heat from Quincy’s full-court press and were down by 23 at halftime of their first game.
Whittell head coach Dennis Young made some adjustments at halftime and his team responded with a stronger showing in the second half, but the Quincy squad was just too big and too fast for the Warriors, who got 11 points from Chris Craig.
“I hope we don’t run into any more teams like that, or it’ll be a long season,” Young said. “They didn’t have a kid under 6-foot and they were fast enough to press very well.”
