With the Christmas school holiday behind, Tuesday was a winning night for the Carey High School basketball teams.

The Panther girls' varsity took care of The Community School girls 57-23, and Carey's boys' varsity had just enough gas in the tank to beat Valley of Hazelton by a 58-50 score.

Parke, Adamson lead Pan-thers

The Carey girls (6-3, 1-0 league) put their five-game home winning boast on the line Thursday night against reign-ing State 1A Division 2 cham-pion Richfield (8-3, 1-1).

But first, coach Lane Durtschi's Panthers tuned up with Tuesday's Northside Con-ference North Division home victory over The Community School (2-4, 0-2 league).

Carey shot 34% from the field and 64% from the charity stripe led by top scorer Jaide Parke (18 points, 4 rebounds, 6 steals). Parke is averaging a team-best 15.7 ppg, but she had plenty of help as seven other Panthers chipped in points. Carey out-rebounded TCS 38-26.

The Carey contributors in-cluded Micaela Adamson (12 points, 8 rebounds, 4 steals, 3 assists), Lorene Andrews (8 points, 6 rebounds), Morgan Parke (7 points, 4 boards), Nicky Gomez (4 points, 2 steals), Lilly Rivera (4 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals), Darby Northcott (2 points, 5 re-bounds), Charmaine Kirkland (2 points), McKayla Mecham (3 boards) and Ashley Durtschi (2 rebounds).

< Coach Erika Connelly's Cut-throats were led by Ella Marks (8 points, 8 rebounds, 2 steals). Other scorers were Taylor Figge 4 points, Paige Riedinger 4, Natalie Goddard 3, Chelsea Cloud 2 and Julie Doan 2.

After Thursday's tussle with Richfield, Carey has two more tough games in store-—aturday at home at 6 p.m. against Chal-lis and Tuesday, Jan. 11 against Butte County of Arco.

Boys nip Valley 58-50

Coach Dick Simpson's 1A Division 2 Carey boys put nine players in the scoring column in a very tight game against the 2A Valley Vikings. Carey led 22-20 at half and outscored Val-ley 36-30 after intermission.

Leading scorer Blair Peck (14.0 ppg) had a game-high 21 points including a season-best five 3-pointers for the Panthers (5-for-13, 39% 3-point range).

Carey, shooting 36% from the field compared to Valley's 25% remained unbeaten at home with a 6-0 record. The Vikings stayed in the game shooting 17-for-23 (74%) at the free throw line, but no Pan-thers ended up with more than three personal fouls.

Other contributors were Baley Barg (9 points, 4 re-bounds, 2 assists), Shane Bing-ham (7 points, 3 rebounds, 3 steals), Jacy Baird (5 points, 4 boards), Dillon Cenarrusa (4 points, 3 rebounds), Brandon Dilworth (4 points, 2 rebounds), Charlie Rivera (3 points, 2 boards), Caleb Cenarrusa (3 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists) and Jack Cenarrusa (2 points).
