Turks take down Falcon girls hoops

Struggling mightily, the South Whidbey girls basketball team fell to Sultan 52-21 on Tuesday.

The Turks took the wind out of the Falcons early. Sultan gained a 19-7 lead by the end of the first quarter. Then the Turks outdid their performance with a 20-0 second quarter stretch.

South Whidbey regrouped a bit in the second half, scoring eight points in the third quarter and six points in the final period. But the Turks held onto their cushy lead behind 12 points from leading scorer Payton McGuire and nine from Shelby Jeffries.

Falcon senior Madi Boyd led South Whidbey with six points, as did junior Abby Hodson with six points.

South Whidbey was eliminated from competing in the District 1 playoffs after losing to Coupeville on Jan. 28 for the second time this season.
