Ahna Burney had 15 points, seven rebounds and five assists as Evergreen overcame a triple-double by Heritage freshman Katie Peneueta. Alanna Jackson added 11 points and nine rebounds, and Amani Edmondson had 10 rebounds for Evergreen.

Katie Peneueta had quite the memorable high school debut for Heritage’s girls basketball team.

Peneueta had 19 points, 14 rebounds, 17 blocks.

Heritage coach Karrin Wilson said afterward that while  Peneueta plays more of a wing and has the skillset to play five positions on the court, her instincts allow her to thrive in the low-post presence, as it clearly showed agains the Plainsmen.
