BC WOMEN ENJOY SUCCESSFUL WEEK
The Bellevue College women’s basketball team won two important games February 6 and 9 in their drive towards the NWAACC Basketball Championship Tournament in March. On Wednesday, the Bulldogs faced Shoreline for the second time this season, and again Bellevue came out on top. It was a slow start for Bellevue in the first half, shooting only 25% from the floor for a ho-hum four-point halftime lead of 21-17. However, the Bulldogs came out with an athletic resurgence in the second half, more than tripling their score for the night and claiming the 69-32 victory. Kaitlynn Bunger led in team scoring with 13 points, followed closely by Airashay Rogers with 12 points and nine rebounds. Brenna Anderson and Jori Hall were also good for nine points each.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, Bellevue hosted the Everett women and were looking to post another win against the Trojans. Once again the Bulldogs got off to a slow start. Though shooting nearly 73% for free throws, Bellevue’s floor shots were falling short, leaving them only two points ahead of the Trojans at the half, 30-28. And, once again, the Bulldogs came roaring back to score 53 points in the second half to earn a solid 83-60 win over Everett. Three Bulldogs scored double-digits, led by Rogers with 19 points and five rebounds, DeMarea Caples added 16 with nine rebounds, and Bunger netted 14 with five rebounds. Co-coach Jeremy Eggers said, “Our women’s team is really buying into playing hard defensively and being aggressive offensively which is making things tough on our opponents and giving a lot of our players confidence on both ends of the court. They are realizing that we have a lot of depth and by working even harder on the defensive end is wearing the other teams down in the second half.”
The Bellevue (8-2 league, 15-8 season) women are locked in a three-way tie for first in the North Region, with Skagit Valley (8-2 league, 16-7 season) and Whatcom (8-2, 15-7). Next up, the Bulldogs travel to Edmonds on Wednesday, Feb. 13, to take on the Tritons (1-9, 5-16), tip-off at 5:00 p.m., but the toughest test will come when Bellevue hosts Whatcom on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 2:00 p.m. Bulldogs will be recognizing sophomores DeMarea Caples, Brenna Anderson, and Chanel Cambronero on Sunday afternoon as well.
