December 3, 2017
The Bear River girls basketball team roared past its opponents at the Lois Langford Tournament, winning the tournament for the second straight year.
After topping Sacramento Country Day and host Live Oak in the first two rounds, the Lady Bruins crushed El Camino in the final, 49-17.
Bear River set the tone early, racing out to a 19-0 first quarter lead on their way to a 34-6 edge at halftime. El Camino would never challenge in the second half as the Lady Bruins held the Eagles to just 11 points in the final two quarters.
"Very proud of our senior leadership early in the season," Bear River head coach Randy Billingsley said.
Leading the Lady Bruins in the title game was a trio of seniors in Katelyn Meylor, Mallory Rath and Kylee Dresbach-Hill.
Meylor, an all-tourney selection, scored 18 points and tallied seven steals in the win. The talented guard averaged 15.3 points and five steals per game in the tourney.
