Carey’s cage teams keep rolling along

Panther girls, boys stretch win streaks

It was a good night for both Carey High School varsity basketball teams Tuesday in Northside Conference home games against the Murtaugh Red Devils. And Carey senior Jaide Parke pulled ever closer to breaking the school’s all-time girls’ career scoring mark.

Parke (12 points, 10 rebounds, 2 steals, 3 assists) helped coach Merrilee Sears’  Panthers (10-6, 4-1 league) to their fourth consecutive victory 49-16 over Murtaugh. Parke (16.3 ppg) improved her four-year career total to 1,102 points, trailing only older sister Jessica Parke (1,129).

Carey’s top scorer in Tuesday’s romp was senior Morgan Parke (19 points, 7 rebounds, 3 blocked shots). Junior Lilly Rivera (6 points, 3 rebounds, 7 steals, 4 assists) set the offense in motion as the Panthers piled up 16 assists. Murtaugh committed 26 turnovers.

Other Panthers were Kylie Castle (4 points), Medin Cenarrusa (4 points, 2 boards, 2 steals), Angelica Zarate (1 point, 6 rebounds, 2 assists), Natalie Villanueva (3 points), Paige Koudelka (2 boards), Ashley Durtschi (4 assists) and Daphne Kirkland (2 assists).

On Jan. 18 in Fairfield, Jaide Parke (21 points) and Morgan Parke (14) led Carey past Camas County 48-25. Stephanie Moore (8 points) led Camas.

Carey’s league game at Richfield Tuesday, Jan. 29 will finalize the regular season and seedings for the Northside tournament starting Saturday, Feb. 2. The Panthers are likely to finish in the top four of the eight-team league standings and earn a home game Feb. 2.

Also Tuesday, coach Dick Simpson’s Carey High School Panthers (10-5, 5-0 league) made it six straight wins 59-30 over Murtaugh. Shooting a lofty 54% from the field, the Panthers led 24-10 after one and 41-10 at half and finished with 16 steals and 16 assists for the night.

Nine Panthers scored topped by Nate Adamson (12 points, 5 rebounds, 3 steals, 6 assists, 2 blocks), Sheldon Hansen (11 points, 6 boards) and Jordan Dilworth (10 points, 4 steals, 4 assists). Leading Murtaugh were Jose Miranda (9 points, 4 steals) and Troy Baynes (8 points, 6 boards, 3 assists).

Contributing solid Carey bench minutes was Joe Parke (9 points, 8 rebounds, 3 steals).

Poncho Gamino (1 point, 3 boards, 2 steals) played his first game after a knee injury. Others were Matt Whitworth (7 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists), Jayce Koudelka (5 points), Gunner Thompson (2 points, 2 boards), Luis Garcia (2 points) and Glen Andrews (2 boards).
