TURNER, Ore.– Crosshill Christian’s Grace Patterson was everywhere during Saturday’s 63-9 win over Siletz Valley at home, the Eagles third win in four games.
The sophomore post player rebounded well on both sides of the ball while leading the game with 21 points in the non-league matchup with the Warriors.
“Our team is really working together now, and so it’s a lot easier to see the court with them. They helped me push to be a better basketball player,” Patterson. “My team really helps and I really realize having fun, not trying to impress everybody in the stadium and just playing the game for you helps a lot.”
There’s a feeling, as they host Oregon School For The Deaf Tuesday and travel to play Falls City Wednesday, that they’re slowly coming together with the bulk of their Casco League play still ahead with them looking to continue to improve. Riding the momentum they’ve built from these past few games.
“I think those wins have pushed our team that we’re better than we are. We tend to play down to the other team’s levels and it shows how good we really are. We’re really showing ourselves and I think if we keep pushing it…I don’t think we’re the best that we can be, I think we’re going to keep going strong,” Patterson said.
Allie Rowzee and Skylar Schaffield each scored ten points for the Eagles, who host the Panthers Tuesday at 5:30pm.
Nevaeh Jackson led the way with three points for Siletz Valley, the Warriors host Mohawk Tuesday in Mountain West League action.
