ONALASKA — In a battle of unbeatens, the Onalaska High School girls basketball team used a strong first half to take control, then rolled past West Salem 45-29 in a nonconference game Monday night.
Onalaska, which pushed its record to 9-0, used a double-double from Courtney Meyer (13 points, 13 rebounds) and a 16-point effort from Tayla Stuttley to seize control early, building a 19-8 lead by halftime.
“From a defensive standpoint, we did a nice job of taking away their better shooters,” Onalaska coach Rob Vieaux said. “We did a nice job defensively the entire game.”
Onalaska didn’t let down after halftime either, outscoring the Panthers (8-1) 16-9 in the third quarter. Natalie Soper helped out the Hilltoppers’ cause, hitting a pair of 3-pointers and finishing with eight points.
“In the third quarter we passed the ball really well,” Vieaux said. “And we passed the ball to the right spot.”
Sydney Dunnum and Anna Lattos led West Salem with seven points apiece. The Panthers were effective from the free-throw line, hitting 10 of 12 attempts, while Onalaska was 7-for-7.
