ATHERTON: The Lady Wolverines earned their first victory of the season, defeating Genesee 54-30 on Tuesday night.

Mursadiz Washington led Atherton all over the court with 24 points, five rebounds and three assists.

“The girls came out to play tonight,” said Atherton coach Darcell Price. “We pressured the ball really well. After last Friday’s loss, we felt that we needed to do a little more and give a little more effort, and the girls did come out and play with heart and effort tonight.”

Amariana Williams came off the bench to score eight points and grab 10 rebounds. Franki Pierce also scored nine points. KayLynn Chilton added six points, and Janess Rivera scored three points. Lauren Morgan and Rayona Price each scored two points.

Last Friday night, Atherton lost to Webberville 54-35.

“We came out sluggish in the first half,” said Price. “In the second half, I felt that we fought hard, but we just couldn’t get over the hump. We are getting better as a unit, and we just got to keep working.”

Morgan had a team-high 13 points, and Washington scored nine. No additional stats were made available for the game.
