BELLEVUE WOMEN’S TEAMWORK PAYS OFF
Coaches vs. Cancer is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches that encourages coaches, their teams and communities to join the fight against cancer. In support of the nationwide awareness weekend and the Coaches vs. Cancer® initiative, $400.00, which represents all proceeds from the Jan. 30 Bellevue College women’s and men’s basketball games, was donated to the American Cancer Society.
Bellevue College women started off a little slow in the away game against Edmonds CC on Jan. 27, but gained momentum going into the second half. Tied at 35 with the Tritons at the end of the first half, Bellevue returned to the court with a vengeance, scoring 41 points to Edmonds’ 18 in the second half before the final buzzer sounded. The 76-53 win keeps the Bulldogs among the leaders of the North Division. Freshman guard Olivia Lewis led scoring for the Bulldogs at 20 points, while Maddie Miller contributed with a double-double of 15 points and 16 rebounds. Kayla Haines added another 15 points, and sophomore Alisha Love posted 8 points to go along with her 11 rebounds
Saturday, Jan. 30, the Bulldogs hosted Shoreline and came away with another strong team win. Love led the way contributing a season-high 29 points, with 20 of those points coming in the first half. Miller added 12 points and 8 rebounds. All 10 athletes on the Bulldogs’ roster not only got in playing time, but all scored points as well. Freshman Danyelle Grayer turned in a solid performance providing five assists and four steals.
Next, the Bellevue women (8-1, 13-6) are off to the Olympic Peninsula for an away game at Peninsula College (2-7, 3-14) in Port Angeles, Weds., Feb. 3, with a 5:00 p.m. tip-off.
