Sutherland downs Creek Valley


The Creek Valley struggled without their top scorer, dropping a one-sided affair to Sutherland 65-39 on the road.

The Sailors outscored Creek Valley 20-3 in the first quarter and went on to establish a 36-11 lead at the half. The Storm were hampered by the absence of Summer Mueller, who could not attend the game due to illness.

“We just didn’t come out to play at all that first quarter,” said Creek Valley Head Coach Bill Wilbur. “We ended up playing a lot of our younger players in the game.”

The Storm’s record slipped to 8-5 while Sutherland advanced to 12-5.

The three Straber sisters led the Storm in scoring, with Jessie and Jerry collecting 6 points apiece and Joey dropping in 4. Jerry Straber also dealt out 5 assists.

On the boards, Hannah Schievelbein and Jill Behrends led the way with 5 and 4 rebounds, respectively. Jerry Straber, Jessie Straber and and Stefanie MItchell all recorded 3 steals.

The Storm are back at it tonight when they travel to Garden County. Both boys and girls junior varsity squads will play simultaneously at 3:30 p.m., as the Eagles have two gyms.

The varsity girls will follow the JV in the larger gym.

The boys take the court in the nightcap.
