WOMEN’S BASKETBALL SECURES PLAYOFF SPOT
With their two wins this past week, Bellevue women’s basketball clinched a spot in the NWAACC Basketball Championship Tournament upcoming in March.
The Bulldogs hosted Seattle Weds., Feb. 17, for the first win of the week by a score of 63-47. Alisha Love led BC with 13 points, followed by Olivia Lewis’s 12, and Tiffany Shen and Maddie Miller, each contributed 10. Bellevue’s biggest accomplishments came from freshman Danyelle Grayer and sophomore Amy Rochowiak who pulled down a combined 22 rebounds! Grayer, a point guard, grabbed 12 rebounds, 11 of of which came from the defensive end, while Rochowiak nailed 8 of her 10 rebounds also from the defensive end. Assistant coach Alysse Carlson remarked, “Those rebounds were big - potentially taking 19 extra possessions away from Seattle which in a close, scrappy game, were extremely crucial.”
Bellevue women continued on with a win over Whatcom 54-51 in Bellingham on Sat., Feb. 20. Whatcom, trying to score a place for themselves in the playoffs, came out with a fury. They went on a run right before half time to come within one point of Bellevue. It was a back and forth game until the final minutes when Shen hit a huge three-pointer from the top of the key and the Bulldogs were able to hold on for the win. Miller also struck gold with a double-double, scoring 11 points and 12 rebounds, and Love hammered in 12 points and six rebounds.
Closing out regular season play, Bellevue (12-2, 17-7) travels to Everett Weds., to take on the North Division third place Trojans (11-3, 15-8) with a 5:00 p.m. start. Sat., Feb. 27, at home in the BC gym, Bulldogs host Edmonds (8-6, 10-12), during a televised game with a scheduled 4:00 p.m. tip-off. Bellevue will also recognize and honor sophomores and their families: Kayla Haines, Alisha Love, Amy Rochowiak and Tiffany Shen.
