All-Americans Lead Central To The Title
Written by Oregon Sportsnet    Saturday, 09 March 2013 20:00   

PORTLAND, Ore. - Jordan Reynolds and Kylie Johnson lead the way for the Rams who claim the OSAA 6A Girls Basketball State Championship held here at the Rose Garden Arena over South Medford by a score of 57 to 36.

Both teams struggled in the 1st half to find their shooting rhythm only managing to shoot 40%.  Central Catholic dominated the backboards with a 21-14 edge in the half.  Kylie Johnson lead Central in 1st half scoring and Ashley Bolston for South Medford. South Medford left after the 1st 17-14 but then Central went into a zone in the 2nd quarter and proved to be a game changer as they took a 31-22 lead into the halftime break.

A key point in the game came at the very end of the quarter when South Medford's Kylie Towry got a break-away and seemingly was fouled and missed the layin. Central then rebounded the miss, outleted to Jordan Reynolds who scored right before the horn to give Central the 9 point lead.  That 4 point swing seemed to be a back breaker for South Medford that had been struggling to score the entire 2nd quarter.

Central began to pull away in the 3rd quarter behind Jordan Reynolds. It was a clear difference in who was ready to finish and who seemed a little shell-shocked.

Central Catholic dominated the boards 35-21 in the game including 14 offensive rebounds that lead to multiple put-back buckets for players like Amantha Hood and Kylie Johnson.  In the end, it was the scoring from the two McDonald's High School All-Americans, Johnson and Reynolds, who combined for a total of 37 points that proved to be the difference.

Sandy Dickerson of Central Catholic became the first female coach to win the State Title since the first ever title winner in 1976.

LEADING SCORERS:

CC: #32 Kailee Johnson (22), #1 Jordan Reynolds (15), #34 Amantha Hood (9)

SM: #11 Ashley Bolston (18), #23 Yaremi Mejia (6), #10 Andee Ritter (4), #12 Julissa Tago (4)
