Lady Indians slay Valley

By GEORGE KUNKE

SOUTH BEND – South Bend used its superior height advantage and Katlyn Sawyer pumped in 18 points and tore down a dozen rebounds to lead South Bend to a 50-37 thumping of Willapa Valley in a physical, turnover-filled game before a crowd of about 325 Saturday night at Koplitz Field House.

With the win, South Bend pulled into a tie for second place with Valley in the Pacific League. Valley (12-7, 8-3) closes out the season against league champion Raymond (18-1, 11-0) Wednesday at Seagull Gym, while South Bend (10-9, 8-3) hosts Naselle (2-14, 2-9). The second place team gets a first round bye at the District IV tournament, which starts Tuesday, Feb. 6. at Montesano and Rochester.
