The Summerville High School girls varsity basketball team got the win over rival Calaveras High School this week, 60-42 at home.

It’s the second win for the Bears against Calaveras this season.

The victory gives the Bears a 5-2 record in Mother Lode League action.

“Grace Fulkerson played a great game scoring 16 points with three threes,” said coach Greg Smith.

Karina Herrera had an impressive scoring night with 13 points.

Delaney Rodgers went seven of eight at the line.

“Serafina Peterson and Laiken Skinner played incredible defense and drove to the basket aggressively for 10 points between the two of them,” said Smith.

The Bears were strong from the freethrow line, too, going 15 of 18 on the night.

They also had six three-point shots.

“Emili Rico assisted on four of those and passed the ball extremely well,” said Smith.

Thanks to a strong defensive effort, the Bears held Calaveras to 14 points in the first half.

“We came out with vigor after halftime and outscored them 23-11 in the third, which allowed us to rest players late,” said Smith.

The win keeps the Bears in the running for postseason play, and it gave them a boost in the playoff seedings.

They’re now No. 6 with five games to play.

Smith said he couldn’t be happier with what the team did.

“We turned in a great effort at both ends,” he said.

Next up for the Bears is Argonaut (7-1). They’ll play at home Friday. The game begins at 7:30 p.m.
