Warrior girls ranked No. 4 heading into Christmas break

Both teams look to polish their games before January


The Washington girls basketball team defeated Lexington last Tuesday, 76-24.

They continue their aggressive play on the court as they land at the No. 4 spot in the Class 3A rankings.

“We’re the aggressor in our games,” said head coach Kale Simon. “We’re sharing the ball and winning the right way. It’s not about winning but how we’re winning.”

Breanna Lindert led all scorers with 19 points in the game.

She was joined in double figures by Preslee Johnson (15) and Rielyn Scheffe (13).

Simon is happy with the way his team is playing but will continue to develop his team over the break.

“We were sharp (against Lexington) and did things that translated into the long term,” he said. “I’m talking to them about habits we’re creating. They’re taking ownership of our system and our goals.”

Washington hosted Guthrie Tuesday night and will scrimmage at Am-Po in a four-way on December 29.

Washington was 6-0 as of press time.


The Class 3A No. 15 Warrior boys drilled Lexington 87-31 last Tuesday.

They led 17-4 after the first quarter before they blew the barn doors off with a 36-point second quarter.

“We were able to pressure the ball really well to create turnovers,” head coach Trevor Smith said. “We were scoring in transition and playing really well together, sharing the ball.”

The Warriors created 20-25 turnovers and used their press to extend the lead.

“It was the home opener and they were excited to play at home after going on the road the first five games,” Smith said. “It was a good home opener.”

The Warriors had 13 players score in the game.

“A lot of guys were able to score it,” Smith said. “Seth Bunch had a career high with 15 points. Cash Andrews had a career high too with 23.”

Washington will host two scrimmages over the break.

The first is on Dec. 29 against Anadarko.

“They’re a good team and ranked No. 12 in 4A,” Smith said.

Then on New Year’s Eve Dickson and Elk City come to town.

Washington is 4-3.
