WWCC women blast Blue Mountain

Blue Mountain entered the Dietrich Dome on the Walla Walla Community College campus missing its leading scorer and rebounder Sydney Wammock, who was out with a concussion.

But even Wammock’s presence likely wouldn’t have helped the Timberwolves in the NWAC East Region matchup with the Warrior women, as the home team handed the visitors an 83-40 defeat on Saturday afternoon.

“We were both missing kids, but theirs was more of an impact player than us,” WWCC coach Bobbi Hazeltine. “They had some trouble adjusting with her (Wammock).

“We got going right away, we’re playing pretty well,” she said. “We got a lot of kids involved. We did a pretty good job defensively.”

Cierra Jo McKeown led the Warriors onslaught with a 28-point game, despite playing just 23 minutes.

“She shot it really well,” Hazeltine said of the Touchet grad. “I tried to play everybody.”

Adrianna Peralez had a double-double for WWCC, scoring 14 points and pulling down 10 rebounds.

“It was her best game of the year,” Hazeltine said.

And Jade Skidmore scored 13 and grabbed eight boards.

The Timberwolves were led by Karlie Gerlinger’s 13 points and five rebounds.

The Warriors, now 6-0 in NWAC East play and 18-1 overall, next head to Treasure Valley on Wednesday.
