Laura “Long-range” Baumert came out firing from long distance last Tuesday, sinking four three-pointers in the opening period of the North Bend girls game against Stanton.

Her barrage of threes helped propel the Tigers to a 20-5 first-quarter lead as NBC coasted to a 59-22 win.

Baumert added one more three-pointer in the second quarter, giving her five on the evening and tying the school record for the most three-pointers in a game.

The senior’s 17 first-half points tied her career best for points in a game, a mark she had set just five days before against West Point.

Baumert cooled off in the second half, adding only one free throw to finish with 18, but she filled the stat book in other areas as well. The 5’5” guard also led the team with seven rebounds and three assists. She also added three steals to the effort.

The Tiger defense was in full effect against the Fillies. NBC led 54-10 after three quarters and held Stanton to just four field goals on 11 percent shooting for the game. North Bend also forced Stanton into 26 turnovers.
Paige Walla, an all-conference defensive selection a year ago, swiped six steals. The senior guard joined Baumert in double figures with 10 points as well.

In all, 11 Tigers found the scoring column as North Bend picked up its fourth straight win to open the season.
