Clark women perfect at line in win

Penguins 20 of 20 shooting free throws against Pierce



The Clark College women’s basketball may have been a bit rusty after a weather-delay imposed week off, but there was no rust from the free-throw line.

Clark was a perfect 20 for 20 from the free-throw line Monday as the Penguins rolled past Pierce 86-65 in an NWAACC West Division game Monday in Lakewood.

Chelsea Dyson scored 31 points, 14 from the line, to lead the Clark scoring attack. Deborah Simmers had 18 points and 18 rebounds, and Macy Mukensnabl added 16 points.

Coach Nancy Boone said her team’s rust showed to the count of 37 turnovers, but the Penguins (12-3, 5-0) put in a good team effort to remain undefeated in division play.

Clark next hosts second-place Centralia at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Clark men 96, Pierce 74 — Austin Bragg had 16 points, 12 rebounds and five assists as the Penguins improved to 15-1 overall, and 5-1 in the NWAACC West Division.

Jerrid Hamler also scored 16 points, and Lucas Swanson tallied 15.

Clark coach Mike Arnold said his team’s execution of its half-court offense was its best so far this season.

All 12 Clark players scored in the game.

Clark next hosts Centralia (4-13, 2-4) at 8 p.m. Wednesday.
