Thunderbirds Soar Past Penguins
Clutch Shooting and Defense Sparks Highline


Jan. 28 - In a game with playoff intensity, Kayly Ivy and Allie Weathersby each scored 16 points and Ionna Price added 15 points and 11 rebounds as Highline may have played its best half of basketball all year in defeating the visiting Clark Penguins 69-59 (stats.) With their fifth win in six games, the Thunderbirds are now 6-2 in the NWAC West Division and 12-9 for the season. Taylor Howlett of Clark led all scorers with 21 points.

The first half of the game was very even, with Highline breaking out to an early 10-1 lead, then Clark with its deliberate offense forging ahead with a run of its own, and the half ending with the Penguins with a 27-26 lead. It was the second half, in which the Thunderbirds shot 60 % (15-25) from the field and forced numerous Clark turnovers, that led the T-Birds to slowly start pulling away with five minutes left to play, sparked by consecutive three-pointers by Weathersby and Jasmyne Holmes and a layup by Price. Clark could get no closer than five points before Highline secured the win with clutch free throw shooting and avoiding turnovers of its own.

Highline next travels to Pierce College on Jan. 31 to take on the Raiders, before returning home on Feb. 4 to take on Lower Columbia.

Bad Shooting, Bad Results
Poor Second Half Does in Highline

Jan. 28-  Basketball can be a very ugly game, especially when your shots aren’t falling and your opponents are making theirs.  Such was the case for Highline in a 95-73 (stats) loss at home to the co-division leaders Clark College Penguins.  After an evenly played first half, the second half saw the Penguins shooting 68% from the field while the Thunderbirds went scoreless for almost ten minutes, leading to their being outscored by 20 points in the final twenty minutes.  Ben Tucakovic, with 18 points and 12 rebounds, led Highline while Bryan Berg (24 points) and Hayden Hall (20 points) led Clark.

With the loss, Highline is 14-6 for the season and 6-2 in the NWAC Division one game behind the division leading Penguins. 

Highline next travels to Pierce College on Jan. 31 to take on the Raiders, before returning home on Feb. 4 to take on Lower Columbia.



 

Wrestling
(Report by Wrestling Head Coach Scott Norton)

 Jan. 25 -  This past Sunday we competed in Portland.  Our guys wrestled well.  Highline was led by 3rd ranked Ben Tynan and redshirt freshman Elias Mason. Ben knocked off the #1 ranked wrestler in the nation by fall.  As I've said before, I think he will be a National Champion by March, but he is going to need to be very focused each match, and wrestle hard for all 7 minutes.  He now has a big bulls-eye on his back. Elias did a great job.  He has moved up to 197 from 174.  This was his first tournament this year.  He fell to the NIC entrant at 197 pounder in the finals 3-0.

    We also had Josh Wessels finish 5th at 197.  He has worked hard to get bigger to try to wrestle at 197 for the Regional tournament.  He did a solid job this weekend and went deep into the tournament.

   One of the brighter spots was Tyler Noon at 165.  He knocked off Jordan Cooks from NIC who beat him two days previously, and is currently ranked #3 at 174.  Tyler may have sent him back to 174.  Noon made it to the semi-finals where he was defeated by Dajoor Reece who is currently the #2 wrestler in the nation.
   
  
Unfortunately, in his next match he was out in front of it, when he tweaked his knee in a match against a wrestler from SOCC. The injury forced him out of the tournament.  However, he had a great showing this weekend.

Our next meet will be at North Idaho for the Region 18 tournament.  The top 4 finishers qualify for the national tournament.
