Ary-Turner leads Decatur past Rams


Sports editor

Senior Kamrica Ary-Turner proved why she was first-team all league last season Friday night. Ary-Turner led the Decatur girl’s basketball team to a 45-42 win over the Rogers Rams in Federal Way with 27 points, including 13 in the fourth quarter.

The win improves the Gators to 4-1 in the South Puget Sound League South Division and puts them in a tie for second place behind undefeated Curtis.

Decatur took a one-point lead into the fourth quarter Friday night and outscored the Rams 18-16 during the final eight minutes to walk away with the win.

Stephanie Dodson led Rogers with 18 points and Decatur’s Ashlie Cavalieri tallied eight points.

The Gators will take on Skyview at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in a non-league game at Decatur. Their next league game is Jan. 6 at Bethel.

Decatur (45) — Kamrica Ary-Turner 27, Ashlie Cavalieri 8, Leanna Pomeroy 5, Nicole Collins 4, Caitlin Britt 1.
