The Sumner girls basketball team continued their winning ways Tuesday with a 59-43 win over Franklin Pierce.
Sumner’s Jamie Lange led the way for the Spartans, topping all scorers with 24 points. Nicole Miller added an additional 10 points.
Things did not start out well for the Spartans, however, as the Cardinals were able to capitalize early for a 10-8 lead after the first quarter. Sumner responded in the second, but still headed to the half down 23-22.
But the third quarter was all Sumner as the Spartans put up 22 points to Franklin Pierce’s 8 and then bested the Cardinals 15-12 in the fourth to secure the win.
The Spartans are now 13-3 overall with an 8-1 record in the South Puget Sound League 3A. Their next game is Friday at home against Steilacoom.
