Rigby downs Skyline with 9 treys; Jan. 10 girls basketball round up

At Skyline, the Rigby High School girls basketball team made nine 3-pointers to down Skyline 62-54 to get back in the win column.

The Trojans made seven 3-pointers in the first half, as they led 37-14 at halftime. Skyline then stormed back with back-to-back 20-point quarters in the second half, but not enough to earn their fourth win of the season.

“We kinda had slumps in the second quarter to put us down,” Skyline coach Ty Keck said. “But coming out of the half, we knew we had a size advantage, and we played with energy we hadn’t played with yet.”

Erin Jenkins led Skyline with 16 points while Brittney Dennert added 11 points. Kylie Jones had 13 points for Rigby. Summer DaBell added 10 points.

Rigby (10-5) plays Hillcrest Friday on the road. Skyline (2-12) plays at Preston on Friday.
