Tiffany also had 13 rebounds. Tiffany Rademacher had eight points and Margo Reiffenberger scored seven with three assists and three steals. Megan Reiffenberger had six points and two steals.

The Trojan ninth grade lost their game to Canby 14-18, though the B- squad was victorious 43-22 over Canby.

At the half, it was 47-38 in the Owls favor on a torrid first half shoot- ing percentage. At the end of three it was 68-52 as a result of three quick buckets just before the end of the quarter. That quarter also saw the Trojans lose Heidi Wittnebel on fouls, as the Owls pulled away in the fourth quarter. Tiffany Rademacher led the Trojan attack with 15 points and four steals.
