Lady Bears take second at Lynx Shootout

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau-Douglas High School girls basketball won three of four games at the Lady Lynx Prep Shootout in Anchorage.

    The Juneau-Douglas High School girls basketball team continued its winning ways last week.

    The Crimson Bears won three of four contests to finish second at the Lady Lynx Prep Shootout in Anchorage. JDHS's outing Saturday night in the championship game wasn't pretty though as the Crimson Bears lost to Anchorage Christian Schools 67-30. It was just the second loss this season for JDHS (15-2). The Lions' speed played a major role in the collapse, said coach Steve Potter.

    "Typically, we want to play at a fast pace but so do they and they were clearly better playing at a fast pace than we were," Potter said.

    JDHS started the tournament Wednesday with a big win over Wasilla. The outcome of Wednesdays' games decides if a team plays in the first-tier (Gold) or second-tier (Maroon) bracket.

    "One thing that they said at the banquet last night was this was the first year that either Wasilla or Dimond hadn't been in the top bracket," Potter said. "And Thunder Mountain is the team that knocked out Dimond and we were the team that knocked out Wasilla. So for Juneau basketball overall, that's certainly something."

    Thunder Mountain finished the tournament 1-3. 

    Juneau's Kendyl Carson and Sadie Tuckwood were named to the all-tournament team.
