Vikings take it to Clark in Lady Wolves Tourney

Steve Yingling, Tribune Sports Editor

Points haven’t come easily for the South Tahoe High girls basketball team against Northern Nevada foes this season.

Perhaps a visit to Southern Nevada is just what the Vikings needed.

Senior Beth Hickman scored 14 points and every Viking scored as STHS opened the Lady Wolves Holiday Tourney with a 69-41 thumping of Clark on Thursday in Henderson.

“We controlled the tempo of the game and by and large, I think that is probably what won us the game,” said STHS coach Tim Jaureguito.

Jaureguito also was pleased with his defense, which limited Clark to 15 first-half points. The Vikings led by 10 points after the opening 8 minutes and 37-15 at intermission.

Senior Lindsey Hitt netted 10 points, while sophomore Tiffany Pinson canned nine.

“She’s such an athlete, and she doesn’t know her potential yet,” Jaureguito said of Pinson. “I feel she is one player who has to mature in the next few weeks to help us out during the league season.”

STHS (3-4) plays either Basic or Bassett on Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Vikings will conclude tournament play with two games on Saturday.

“You get in a tournament like this, every team you’ll play will be a little tougher,” Jaureguito said.
