Monroe girls beat Everett

MONROE — The Monroe girls basketball team got contributions from both ends of the experience scale during a league victory Monday night.

Junior Emily Drivstuen had a game-high 17 points to lead the Bearcats to a 50-35 victory over Everett in a Wesco North girls basketball game Monday night at Monroe High School.

“She played an all-around good game,” Monroe coach Branda Anderson said of Drivstuen, adding that Drivstuen did a solid job “crashing the boards.”

Sophomore Sammi Clark added 11 points and freshman Suzanna Ohlsen, who Anderson said had a “breakout game moving the ball” added nine for the Bearcats, who improved to 4-7 in league and 5-10 overall.

“Everett made some runs and closed the gap a couple of times, but we kept our composure during the game,” Anderson added. “We’re learning composure and how to control ourselves. When we play composed, we can be tough.”

Mollie Antiojo had 11 points and Alex MacCormac had 10 to lead the Seagulls, who fell to 4-7 in Wesco North play and 5-9 overall.
