TURNER, Ore.–  Roszylynn Schmunk has been slowly coming back online since spraining her wrist in a freak accident during PE one day about two weeks ago.  And despite still having tape around the joint to keep it stabile, the freshman had made her presence known Friday evening in Cascade’s Oregon West Conference opener against Sweet Home as she scored 14 points in the Cougars 70-20 victory over the Huskies with eight of the points coming in the first quarter and the other six coming in the third.

“It’s been hard.  It’s been hard sitting on the bench and watch,” Schmunk said of the past few days.

The win Friday snapped a three-game skid for Cascade as they built some momentum going into Tuesday’s game with Stayton at Stayton.  Their press defense took a moment or two to lead into their offense as the Huskies led briefly 3-2 before the Cougs used their aggressive playing style to go on a 30-4 run to close out the first quarter.  Leading 32-7 going into the second quarter and led 46-12 at the halftime break.

“Quite a bit, we’re normally pretty aggressive on that end and it helps get us tips and everything,” Schmunk said of the press.  “Just staying in it with the mind and being confident, focused with it.”

Maddie Dustin led Cascade with 20 points and Cassidy Crabtree contributed another eight in the win.

Brooke Burke led Sweet Home with 15 points.
