BEARS SHINE FROM DISTANCE

FREWSBURG — Jeff Collver had his team work especially hard on 3-point shooting in practice in recent days.

Then the Bears turned around and rewarded their coach in a big way on game night.

Led by Mikayla Gabalski-Jones’ 27 points, including six treys, Frewsburg rolled to a 66-36 victory over Westfield/Brocton in a Division 2 West contest.

Gabalski-Jones wasn’t the only one hitting from distance.

All told, the Bears (12-8, 4-6) connected on a school-record 13 shots from the arc on 37 attempts, including nine in the middle two periods, on their way to the convincing victory.

“We had one 3 in the first quarter,” Collver said. “Then the floodgates kind of opened up.”

Ashley Carlson added four treys, and Reagan Chitester, Elise Sposato and Amanda Dilts each had one.
