Lady Outlaws took some wear and tear in Holiday Tournament
By rongi yost
The Lady Outlaws were
exhausted after they com-
pleted four games at the
Sisters Holiday Tournament,
held Monday through
Wednesday, December 29-31.
After a team dropped out of
the tourney the Outlaws had
to play both sides of the
bracket and play four games
in two days.
Top-ranked Henley domi-
nated play throughout the
tourney and was crowned
tournament champion. The
Hornets boast a great point
guard and a big, strong post,
and the team is very fast in
transition; they make over
70 percent of their points on
Seaside finished runner-
up, and La Grande took third.
Sisters placed twice — fifth
and sixth — as they played
both sides of the bracket.
Coach Julianne Horner
said, “As a coach, playing
both sides of the bracket is a
very difficult position to put
your team in. I knew the final
game would be very difficult
and physically grueling. I am
very proud of the team and
how hard they worked. We
saw what we are made of.
The player that really stood
out was junior Olivia Stewart.
She was tenacious until the
final second on the clock and
kept her team motivated until
the end. This experience will
help us as we begin a difficult
league schedule.”
Sisters started with a
51-33 victory over Illinois
Valley (IV).
The Outlaws jumped out
quick, put 12 points up on the
scoreboard in the first four
minutes of the contest, and
limited IV to just one basket.
At the close of the quarter
Sisters held a 16-6 lead.
Sisters continued to con-
trol the pace of the game and
held onto the lead to the very
end to secure the win.
Stewart led the team with
15 points, Boston Moore con-
tributed nine, Cierra Mann
tallied eight and Nina Horner
added six.
Horner said, “I was very
happy with our intensity
on defense and patience on
offense in the first few min-
utes of the game. We were
able to take control right from
the tip and then move the ball
offensively to where we had
an easy shot.
“In the second quarter, we
decided to run a defense that
we have not been comfortable
running much, but know we
will need it as we head into
league. I am impressed with
how well they moved into a

defense that as a team they
are not strong in yet. We were
able to adjust and make the
changes we will need going
into our league play.”
Sisters’ next match-up was
against No. 2 ranked Henley
and the Outlaws suffered a
brutal 68-28 loss.
The Hornets took control
from the tip-off with quick
transitions and very good full-
court pressure that put Sisters
in the deficit immediately.
We settled in
in the second quarter
and were playing well,
but gave up too many
transition buckets that
kept us out of contention.
— Coach Julianne horner
“We have never faced a
team that has a solid game
both inside and out. They
were able to shoot outside
and they have posts that were
much bigger than us that gave
them second shots off offen-
sive rebounds.

playing well, but gave up
too many transition buckets
that kept us out of conten-

game for us to see what pace
we need to get up to.”
Mann put up seven points
