The varsity girls basketball team improved to 2-0 on the season with a 72-33 victory over Columbia Central on Friday. Northwest jumped out to a 19-7 start after the first quarter, and never looked back. Stifling defensive pressure, and a strong offensive attack kept the Mounties in front all night long. Sydney Shafer led Northwest in scoring with 17, and played well defensively. Carsyn Sleight continues to play well at both ends of the floor, adding 12 and a solid all around game. Ella Bontrager added 12 points as well . MJ Caster, Anya Hedrich and Morgan Hanchett each scored 8 points. Jozie Bontrager added 5, and Brooklynne Bevier 2. The Mounties are playing well as a team, and continue to improve each day. The next varsity tilt is Friday, December 8 at 6 PM at Northwest High School. The Mounties kick off conference play with Harper Creek coming to town.
