But they weren't. "The Aberdeen game was one we let slip through our fingers," Leth said. Abderdeen defeated Shelton 46-29. "We did well in transition because it was the only time we scored," Leth said. "Our of- fense was not home tonight. We couldn't run any of our sets we have been practicing for the last week." Despite the game's score, Shelton shot above 40 percent, but Leth said the team needs to get more shots up. "We would like to be around 60 shots a game," he said. He attributed part of the team's difficulties to its mental state. Leth said that most coaches would agree, if asked, that win- ter break is not just a break from school. "The players sometimes take a break. We need to be more fo- cused and ready to work when we walk into the Mini Dome (next week)," Leth said. Seniors Taylor Stroud and Jordan Leach led the Lady Highclimbers with six points each. Senior Cheyenne Over- lin and junior Jessica John- son contributed four points apiece. Finally, senior Kassy Slone, Journal photo by Emily Hanson On her way to the hoop, Shelton senior Jordan Leach holds off Aberdeen sophomore Erin Kuhn on Saturday during the Lady Highclimbers' game at Aberdeen. junior Twana Machado and soph- omores Ella Pinter and Aurora Gouley scored two points each.

Athlete of the Week Basketball keeps MMK senior involved By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncounty.com As a Running Start student, Ashley Kiliz isn't at Mary M. Knight High School as much as she used to be. Before this year, she'd spent five years in the Skills USA club, two years in ASB, one year in FFA and seven years in class government. But taking class- es at South Puget Sound Com- muni- ty Col- Kiliz lege in Olym- pia has taken so much time that she hasn't been involved the 'way she used to be.

"To me, you have to put more effort into it because it's a team sport." Unlike a lot of ath- letes who go through a series of coaches as they age, Kiliz has been under the direction of Mary M. Knight head girls' basketball coach Lance Valley her entire basketball career. "I think we all have enormous respect for Coach Valley and we've all been with the same group of girls," Kiliz said. "It's helped us to build as a family in- stead of a team." Although she played volleyball the past three years, Kiliz gave that sport up for Running Start this year. Through Running Start, Kiliz is working toward an Associate of Arts degree and hopes to transfer to a four- year university. "I'm debating earning a bachelor's or master's degree in marketing," Kiliz said. She said her interest in marketing lies in the income potential. "I'd like to always be financially set," she said. Although Kiliz said finished with school and working a steady job. She said she's de- bated her entire life whether she wants to live in Matlock.
