The Seneca girls’ basketball team started its season in non-conference action with Highland visiting. The home team offense seemed on fire as the Indians recorded the victory, 64-17.

“We shot really well. We spread the ball out on them and were able to get a lot of good looks at the basket. Then we just knocked ‘em down,” veteran coach Kim Redman said.

She starts four seniors and overall thought her team’s experience and scoring abilities were credited for their initial win. The girls managed to outscore the Cardinals 32-11 by halftime and then just didn’t give their opponents many good looks at the hoop.

Leading the charge on Seneca’s offense, Alivia Salinas finished with an impressive 22 points. Fellow senior Emily Garfoot tallied 13 points. Also in double digits, junior Erin Sime had 11 points, while sophomore Makenna Greene rounded out the top scorers with eight points.

Redman noted her expectations that Seneca should have a good season if the girls can stay healthy, get in shape and find more consistency on defense.

“We were hitting our shots, but that’s not always going to be the case, so we need to up our defense,” she said.

Next on the line-up, Seneca faces Boscobel Tuesday at home in another non-conference game. Then, after Thanksgiving, the team will start seeing its Ridge and Valley opponents.
