Despite a strong performance from Addesa Miller, Dalton High School’s varsity girls basketball team could not overcome Brush, as the Lady Dawgs fell 49-43 on the road Dec. 29.
Miller scored 20 points, 15 of which came from 3-point range, in addition to four rebounds and two assists.
Ella Lunsford totaled nine points, three rebounds and four assists. Mia Weaver recorded seven points and six rebounds. Kylee Johnson contributed five points, three rebounds and two assists. Sarah Witmer scored two points. Maddy West dished one assist.
“Brush was a tough opponent in many ways,” said Dalton’s head coach Katie Miller. “We did a nice job settling in after a few possessions in the first quarter. We had opportunities to take the lead in the fourth quarter. We will learn from the loss and look to get better. We must continue to get better individually on defense and as a team. Offensively, we must continue to work on half court, transition and pressure. Even though we are 5-5, we are getting better, and if we continue to, we will have a strong second half of the season.”
The Lady Dawgs now have an overall record of 5-5 and they are 4-2 against WCAL teams.
