Having already clinched the outright GAC Central girls basketball championship, Washington showed Holt how it got there with a convincing win Friday night.

The Lady Jays (19-4, 7-0) cruised to a home victory, 53-26.

“They kind of took it to us the last time we played them. We were down 15-3 and 22-8 before we came back, so we talked about getting off to a good start this time, at least on the defensive end,” said Washington Head Coach Adam Fischer. “They threw a 1-3-1 at us and we didn’t do a good job at times moving the ball around. But we found the open person and were a little more patient than the last time we played them.”

Washington shoots for an unbeaten league season Tuesday against Ft. Zumwalt East and hosts Pacific Thursday at 6 p.m.

“We’ll be looking to keep East in the low 20s. If we keep teams in the low 20s, I have two girls who can score more than that together, so hopefully we can do that,” Fischer said. “We play a good Pacific team. The Four Rivers Conference for girls basketball is ridiculous. We know Pacific is battle-tested. Against Hermann, St. James and Sullivan, they’ve been in every game. They have (Kya) Hill inside who’s hard to stop. We just need to buckle down and get ready for districts.”

The Lady Jays are seeded second for the Class 5 District 10 Tournament next week at Northwest. They play third-seeded Northwest in the semifinals Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

Washington held the lead all the way against Holt, including 15-4 after one quarter, 26-8 at halftime and 35-16 after three quarters.

“They had eight points at halftime, so you can’t really complain about that,” Fischer said.

“We had a couple of down moments in the second half where they scored on four possessions in a row. When we get to districts and hopefully beyond, we can’t allow that to happen. We’re working to get better every day and we did tonight.”

Kyra Hardesty finished the game with 16 points, four assists and three steals. Paige Carpenter collected 15 points, three rebounds and two steals.

Courtney Kedroski had nine points, four rebounds and two steals. Rachel Kackley added seven points, 14 rebounds and five blocks. Alex Ready, Megan Freitag and Megan Bauche each scored two points. Bauche added four assists and three rebounds.

“Rachel did a great job on the boards. Megan Bauche and Megan Freitag guarded No. 11 (Mel Taouil), she’s averaging 17 points and 11 rebounds, and she didn’t get there tonight,” Fischer said. “Defensively, we’re getting into a better groove.”
