The Carey High School boys kept humming along, and Carey's girls snapped a four-game losing streak Tuesday when the Panthers renewed their hardcourt acquaintance with the visiting Camas County Mushers from Fairfield.

Coach Dick Simpson's Carey boys (12-2, 3-0 league) made it five straight wins and im-proved their homecourt record to 8-0 with a 63-32 Northside Conference victory over Camas County (3-10, 1-2). Carey shot 43% from the field and out-rebounded Camas 43-23.

Senior Blair Peck (15 points, 3 steals, 2 assists) led Carey with quite a bit of support from his supporting cast—nine other Panthers scored points and Carey's defense had 19 steals. The Panthers led 34-23 at half-time and put it away with an 18-3 run in the third quarter.

Other Panthers were Baley Barg (8 points, 10 rebounds, 6 offensive, 2 blocks), Brandon Dilworth (9 points, 3 steals), Jacy Baird (10 points, 2 boards), Shane Bingham (7 points, 2 steals), Joey Laidlaw (4 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists), Jack Ce-narrusa (4 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals), Caleb Cenarrusa (2 points, 5 assists, 2 steals), Chance Chavez (2 points, 2 boards, 2 assists) and Dillon Cenarrusa (2 points, 3 boards).

Musher junior guard An-drew Simon (21 points) nailed five 3-pointers for Camas.

Carey goes to Richfield (3-7, 1-1) today, Friday, and visits The Community School Jan. 25.

Battle-tested after four straight games against tough challengers, coach Lane Durtschi's Carey girls (7-7, 2-2 league) won their sixth home game of the season Tuesday by a 51-35 score over Camas.

Carey had eight players in the scoring column—Jaide Parke 11 points, Micaela Ad-amson 10, Nicky Gomez 9, Lilly Rivera 8, McKayla Mecham 6, Morgan Parke 3, Darby North-cott 3 and Lorene Andrews 1.

Musher 6-0 junior post Katelyn Peterson is back in the lineup for Camas and she led the way with 19 points.

Carey visited reigning State 1A Division 2 champion Rich-field (10-3, 3-1) Thursday and goes to The Community School (4-6, 1-4) Tuesday. The Camas girls traveled to league-leading Dietrich (12-1, 5-0) Thursday.
