Another win for JV girls basketball

A Class 4A opponent proved no problem for the Powell High School girls’ junior varsity basketball team.

The JV dismantled Riverton 42-25 on Saturday to run their record to 11-1 on the season.

“This was as complete of a game as we have played all year,” said JV coach Troy Hildebrand, adding, “They were very effective in the press and most of all they shared the ball extremely well.”

The coach did say the team didn’t finish around the basket as well as it could have. Powell built up an 25-12 advantage at the half and led 34-16 after three quarters.

Junior Aimee Kawano and freshman Kalina Smith scored eight points apiece. Sophomore Breanna Donarski added seven points in two quarters of action, followed by six from sophomore Danna Hanks and five free throws from freshman Jen Bonander.

Hildebrand called it Kawano’s best game of the year, “as she was a real spark on both ends of the court with a number of hustle plays that gave us extra opportunities.”

“The trio of Danna, Breanna and Kalina continued to cause some major havoc at the front end of our press and they were able to convert a lot of those chances into quick points for us,” Hildebrand added.

Meanwhile, the coach said juniors Makaila Moore and Rebecca Pratt, sophomore Anissa Warner and Bonander “did a great job of cleaning up the boards and not allowing many second chances for Riverton.”
