Chris Proctor’s South Tahoe High head coaching debut started with visions of an upset and ended with the reality of being soundly defeated by the Galena Grizzlies.

The Vikings led the Grizzlies after the first period, but Galena turned up its pressure defense for a 42-18 nonleague girls’ basketball victory Tuesday in Reno.

“It’s good for the girls to have a little bit of a gage for what to expect,” said Proctor, who replaced Tim Jaureguito as coach following last season. “It was a good wakeup call.”

Tiffany Pinson led the Vikings with nine points and six steals.

“She had a great game. She was all over the court,” Proctor said.

STHS (0-1) plays Lowry in the Carson Invitational at 3:30 p.m. Thursday at Carson Middle School. The Vikings will also play a second game on Thursday at approximately 7 p.m.

Wines hit four 3-pointers

Senior Ashley Wines sank a career-high four 3-point field goals, but it wasn’t enough as Whittell High lost a nonleague girls’ basketball game to Quincy 46-36 Tuesday in Zephyr Cove.

“Despite the score, the girls did a pretty good job,” said WHS coach Lindsay Wines. “We still need to do a better job taking care of the ball, but they did a better job rebounding.”

Whittell sophomore Whitney Gielow netted six points and Jenna Hayes added two in solid peformances, according to coach Wines.

The Warriors closed the gap to seven points in the fourth quarter but could get no closer.

Whittell (1-3) plays host to North Tahoe tonight at 6 p.m.

Warriors win first game

The Warriors finally nailed down their first win defeating Quincy 56-52 after trailing by 12 points heading into the fourth period.

The kids played one heck of a ball game,” said head coach Brian Mehrer, who logged his 100th win Tuesday night in the Warrior gym.

Jake Summers led the Warriors with 21 points followed by Alex Swearingen with 13; Chris Shapiro with seven; Brian Jones with six; Nick Lowe with five; Joe Ilk with three and Kyle Olsen with one.
