Lady Vikes back on track with victory over Blue Mountain

MOSES LAKE — The Big Bend women saw the mortar crumble a little bit last week with back-to-back losses to Walla Walla and Wenatchee Valley, but they shored up the foundation with an 81-61 win over Blue Mountain on Saturday at DeVries Activity Center.

Kelsey Sorenson scored 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead Big Bend, which snapped a two-game losing streak to keep pace with Wenatchee Valley in the NWAC East Region. Sorenson was 5 of 13 from the floor and 8 of 10 from the free-throw line. Seven of her 13 rebounds came on the defensive glass.

"I thought we played well today. We were down on ourselves a little bit coming off back-to-back losses and they were coming off a big win at Walla Walla, but we were able to pull away in the second half," Big Bend coach Preston Wilks said. "We want to definitely chase down Wenatchee (19-2, 8-0) and it's done by winning your next game.

"Right now there's no game bigger than CBC coming in on Wednesday."
