PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Post Falls wakes up, runs past Lewis and Clark

| November 30, 2022 1:20 AM

SPOKANE — The first quarter was a wake-up call.

The second and third might have been an indication for Post Falls.

Senior Capri Sims scored 18 of her game-high 26 points in the second half as Post Falls outscored the Tigers 40-20 in the second and third quarter en route to a 76-57 win over Lewis and Clark on Tuesday.

“We haven’t played a team that challenged us like that in the first quarter,” Post Falls coach Brian Hall said. “It kind of shell-shocked us. They kind of woke us up in the first quarter and after that, the girls settled down and played their game.”

Junior Brooklynn Brennan scored 16 points, junior Kinleee McLean 14 points on 4 of 4 from the 3-point line and sophomore Myckenzee Mitley 10 points for Post Falls (3-0), which is scheduled to play at Rocky Mountain of Meridian on Thursday.

“It was nice to see Brooklynn, Kinlee and Myckenzee in double figures,” Hall said. “They started hitting some shots and played really well.”

Ruby Shaw and Brooklyn Jenson scored 10 points each for Lewis and Clark.
