Vikings 0-2 in Carson Invitational

The Vikings are improving with every game, said South Tahoe High girls coach Chris Proctor, and that’s all he can ask.

The Vikings met Lowry, a Nevada 3A school, in the first of two games Thursday at the Carson Invitational, and lost 42-8.

“We just had nothing, absolutely nothing (on offense),” Proctor said. “(Lowry) shot the lights out. They were small but fast and they’re a good team.”

The Vikings lost 63-31 to Wooster in their second game, but they had half as many turnovers with 12.

“Believe it or not that was a victory, a major moral victory,” Proctor said.

Tiffany Pinson lead the Vikings with 14 points, followed by Erin Jamison with eight.

Proctor said the team will work on building confidence and learning to handle the full-court press.

“Tonight was the best I’ve ever felt after a 32-point loss in my career,” Proctor said.

The Vikings scored 27 of 31 points in the second half.

“Their temptation was to give up and they decided not to against Wooster, so that was great,” Proctor added.

The Vikings face Spring Creek Friday at 3 p.m. and Armijio at 6 p.m. Both games are at Carson Middle School.
