REGIONAL— The Grizzly girls have hit a rough patch, losing three of their past four games. On Tuesday, they fell to Mesabi East 88-54, as the Giants racked up 50 points in the first half and never looked back.

Ava Hill had an outstanding game for Mesabi East, racking up 30 points. Bria Chiabotti was top scorer for the Grizzlies, with 17 points. Hanna Sandberg and Regan Ratai added eight points apiece for North Woods, followed by Kate Stone with six and Alanna Rutchasky and Kennedy Wardas with four points each.

The Grizzlies had no more success against a strong Blue Devils squad on Monday, losing 66-30. Virginia’s defense held the Grizzlies to just 12 points in the first half. While North Woods got back on track in the second half, it was too little, too late. Bria Chiabotti led scoring for the Grizzlies, with eight points, while Sasha Strong added six. Regan Ratai and Kennedy Wardas each added four points, while Hanna Sandberg added three.

Lexiss Trygg led scoring for the Blue Devils, with 15 points.

In action late last week, the Grizzlies had four players in double-digits as they easily outdistanced Northeast Range, beating the winless Nighthawks 67-32. Bria Chiabotti led the way for the Grizzlies with 17 points, followed by Hanna Sandberg with 13 points and Kate Stone with 12. Brynn Simpson added ten points, Kennedy Wardas added six and Sasha Strong notched five. Regan Ratai and Kayla Palm each added two points.

Shayler Lislegard led the way for the Nighthawks, with 14 points, followed by Casey Zahnow with eight points and Makaya Bodas with seven. Natalie Nelmark added two.

The Grizzlies travel to International Falls on Tuesday to take on the Broncos. The Nighthawks head to Hill City next Friday, Jan. 19, to take on the Hornets.
