BEARS WIN MARIPOSA TOURNAMENT

MARIPOSA — With most valuable player Kellie Pierce leading the way, the Summerville High School girls' basketball team won the round-robin Mariposa Tournament with a 3-0 record on Friday and Saturday.

Pierce, who averaged 15.3 points and eight assists per game, was joined by fellow Bears Megan Wingo (11.7 ppg) and Leena Van Treece (8.0 ppg) on the all-tournament team.

"Kellie was a unanimous choice for Most Valuable Player and deserved to be because she had an outstanding tournament," Summerville coach Darcy Wingo said. "She's always so conscious of passing the ball, but she had all phases of the game — passing, scoring and defense — working for her in the tournament."

Pierce's break-out party opened with a bang in Summerville's 76-38 win over Turlock Christian on Friday.

Pierce led all scorers with 23 points as Summerville outscored Turlock by at least seven points in each quarter.

Megan Wingo (12 points), Leena Van Treece (12) and Melissa Wise (10) also reached double figures for the Bears.

Summerville faced its stiffest competition of the tournament against Buhach Colony in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

With Summerville trailing 32-31 tie at halftime, the Bears' defense took control in the second half, limiting the Thunder to 12 second-half points in Summerville's 55-45 win.

Once again, Pierce led all scorers with 19 points, and Kelsey Wingo added 14.

"That was the best defensive effort in quite a few years by a girls' team against Buhach in the second half," Wingo said.

With host Mariposa standing between the Bears and a tournament championship in the second game on Saturday, Summerville jumped out to a 30-13 lead in the first half and never looked back en route to a 48-31 victory.

With Pierce limited to just four points, Megan Wingo picked up the slack with her 16 points. Van Treece and Kelsey Wingo also added eight points apiece while K.C. Benner chipped in with seven points.
