Tioga girls post first victory


MODESTO Shelbi Bodine scored 12 points in leading the Tioga High School to its first girls' basketball victory of the season, 29-17 over Calvary Temple on Monday night.

Bodine, a senior, made the only two 3-pointers of the game for the Timberwolves (1-8, 1-2 Mountain Valley League), who led 9-4 at the quarter break, 13-9 at halftime and 20-15 at the end of three quarters before putting on a 9-2 finishing spurt.

Freshman starters Kim Holt and Betsy King scored four points apiece, and Tioga got additional frosh boosts from Sara Meehan and Janessa Owens.

"I've been happy with the performance of the freshmen all year," Tioga coach Jim McClure said. "They're continually improving."

Tioga is back in action Thursday against Turlock Christian, with tipoff set for 7:30 p.m. at Tenaya School in Groveland.

Cougars fall to TC

Mother Lode Christian (3-12, 0-3) lost 54-28 to MVL contender and host Turlock Christian, which has only one league loss.

Sam Brinegar scored 14 points, with two 3-pointers, and Amanda Hess 11 for the Cougars. Nicole Souza led Turlock with 13.

Mother Lode visits Stockton Christian on Friday.
