GIRLS BASKETBALL GRACE 44, AMERICAN FALLS 37

At Grace, the Grizzlies — featuring a fair number of players from their 1A DI state championship volleyball team — started the season with a win.

Freshman Sydnee Smith had 15 points to lead Grace and senior Maniah Clegg had eight points and 17 rebounds. The Grizzlies trailed 28-27 before a strong final quarter.

“It was awesome to be able to play with all the craziness going on,” Grace coach Kyle Christensen said. “The girls were excited, both teams. We have a bunch of girls in new spots and it was fun to see the girls work hard together and get a win.”

McKenzie Long had 14 points and Emma Barclay added 10 for American Falls.

Grace (1-0) hosts Malad on Saturday. American Falls (0-1) hosts West Side on Wednesday.
