Whittell girls basketball got off to a slow start Tuesday night against Sierra Lutheran.

Senior Zoe Bertz scored all six points for the Lady Warriors in the first half who went on to lose 28-24.

“We came out flat with no energy,” coach Tom Esposito said.

“We picked it up in the second half, but it was too little too late.”

After trailing 21-13 at the end of the third quarter, Whittell came back within five points with three minutes left in the game before sinking one last foul shot.

Bertz ended the game with 12 points and sophomore Daria Sharon followed with nine.

Whittell’s next game is at Pyramid Lake High School on Saturday.
