Tahoe Daily Tribune Staff Reports

Finding positives in a 28-point nonleague defeat isn’t what Chris Proctor was hired to do.

However, the South Tahoe High girls’ basketball coach was pleased with his team’s progress in one area in a 53-25 loss to Galena on Tuesday night in South Lake Tahoe.

“We finally started to work it into the low post,” said Proctor following the Vikings’ fourth loss in five games. “Most of our points were from taking it into the low post and it freed up some outside shots.”

Galena tipped off with a 9-0 run and put away the Vikings with a string of 3-pointers to begin the fourth quarter.
