Moses Lake girls improve in key areas over summer

Print Article

Moses Lake girls basketball showed tremendous strides on the court this summer, improving by eight wins from last summer.

The Chiefs also showed strides in assists, turnovers, scoring, defense, outside shooting and free throw percentage. Senior Madisyn Clark led the team in scoring with 11.7 points per game; Anna Olson and Camille Carpenter contributed just over eight and six points, respectively.

“Madisyn, Camille and Anna were our big three, but we saw major improvement and contributions from Gabi Rios, Farrya Sandmann and Meagan Karstetter too,” head coach Matt Strophy said. “Carlie Gregg is our energizer bunny. Everyone contributed to our success this summer and I’m excited for November to get here.”

Moses Lake started its slate of summer games with a 5-0 start at the Eastmont Tournament. Showcasing their improved outside shooting, the Chiefs made 12 three-pointers in a 65-56 win against Okanogan. Clark had her best tournament scoring the ball with a 15.2 average. Carpenter led the team in rebounds and steals.

Moses Lake broke even, 3-3, at the Gonzaga Shootout after finishing 0-6 last summer. Gabi Rios rebounded the ball well in the absence of Carpenter. Moses Lake finished 5-4 at the Gonzaga Team Camp.

“Mental toughness really comes into play during this stretch of the summer, and although we were better than last year, we are not where we want to be so there is work to be done in this area,” Strophy said.

After their peaks and valleys at Gonzaga, the Chiefs finished their summer with an 8-2 record. Moses Lake reached the championship game at the Yelm Tournament before losing to White River 52-36.

Moses Lake ended its summer with a 5-1 mark at the Eastern Team Camp, despite missing Carpenter, Avery Gephart and Meagan Karstetter. Olson complained about using a college basketball against Jackson before draining seven three-pointers in a 53-36 win.

“We have seven returning players and they did a great job including and mentoring the newcomers,” Strophy said. “That will pay off for us come next season.”
