Spartans put away Wildcats early / Girls basketball

The Stanwood High School girls basketball team scored more points in the first quarter than Oak Harbor did in the game, and the visiting Spartans collected a 62-21 Wesco win over the Wildcats Friday, Jan. 5.

The veteran Spartans (3-1, 7-5) scooted to a 24-6 lead in the first quarter and then led 32-10 at the half and 52-17 after three periods.

“We were really hurt by their height and length,” Oak Harbor coach Jon Atkins said. “They also shot well from the outside.”

The Spartans hit seven three-pointers in the game, four in the first quarter.

Atkins noted that Stanwood features four three-year starters who will most likely be playing college ball in the future.

He saw some positives from his club and liked the work of Samantha Hines and Jasmine Ford in the game.

Hines’ motor “is always running high,” he said, and all the opponent coaches have commented on Ford’s development.

Mia Littlejohn scored 8 points for Oak Harbor, Ford 6, Miranda Wilson 4, Jordan Wood-Pina 2 and Hines 1.

Ashley Alter led Stanwood with 16 points, Kaitlin Larson had 12 and Madison Chisman 10; each appeared in only three quarters.

Oak Harbor (0-4, 3-9) goes to Mountlake Terrace (0-3, 1-10) for a Western Conference contest Wednesday, Jan. 10. The Wildcats beat the Hawks in a non-league game 49-45 Nov. 29.
