Freshmen Players Spark Dos Pueblos Girls to Victory Over Louisville

The freshmen led the way for the Dos Pueblos girls basketball team on Saturday.

Lily Mires had a breakout game with 16 points, Ava Sommer recorded a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds and Leila Chisolm knocked down a pair of three pointers off the bench in a 57-32 win over Louisville at the Nordhoff Tournament.

"It's a big jump from 8th grade to varsity basketball, and our three freshmen are starting to figure out the speed of the game and what they can and cannot get away with against varsity competition," said DP assistant Mike Gerken. "This tournament was a great learning experience for all of them."

Mires added nine rebounds and four steals to her stat line.

After a poor-shooting second quarter, the Chargers turned things around with their defense in the second half.

The defensive adjustment led to 14  turnovers by Louisville, led by Sadie Subject's five steals. The Chargers outscored Louisville 17-5 in the quarter and held the Woodland Hills school to just six points in its first 27 possessions in the half.

Subject was named to the all-tournament team.

"Our guards did a great job of pressuring their ball handlers and forcing some bad passes giving lots of transition opportunities," said Gerken.

He praised Chisholm for her contributions off the bench.

"Leila is a kid with no fear," Gerken said. "When we put her in, we know she is going to compete. We trust her to hit shots when she comes in and that's just what she did today."

Dos Pueblos improves to 6-4 and hosts Cate on Tuesday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
