Claycee West was triple trouble for Bloomingdale Tuesday as the White Pigeon sophomore cut through the Cardinals’ defense for 36 points in the Chiefs’ 53-51 home win. The point total capped what turned out to be a triple-double performance for the guard.
With 10 rebounds, 11 steals, four assists and five blocks, West was next to unstoppable.
Reyna Fielis scored six points for White Pigeon, Melissa Hayden and Sidney Mishler both had three, and Shanna Hagner and Courtney Delarye added two apiece. Hayden also grabbed six rebounds, Mishler pulled down four, Clara Verela registered seven boards and a free throw and Hagner had four rebounds. Delarye added two boards and Mishler made five assists.
“So proud of our effort tonight,” White Pigeon coach Brooke McClure said. “We had a rough first half, but we didn’t wavier and came back with aggressive defense that turned into points. Really proud of our diligence and having the fight to win.”
