JAMESTOWN - Without its second-leading scorer, the Dickinson High girls basketball struggled to keep up with Jamestown, tumbling to a 75-39 defeat on Saturday, Jan. 5 at Jamestown High School.

Midgets junior forward Peyton Selle sat out the contest against the Blue Jays with a high-ankle sprain.

Entering the game shorthanded, Dickinson (4-4, West Region 4-3) got into trouble shortly after tip-off as senior guard Gabby Jung and junior post Audrey Rodakowski were sent to the bench due to fouls. With the Midgets’ duo scoreless in limited action during the first half, Blue Jays junior guard Kameron Selvig took advantage, scoring 17 of her game-high 22 points in the first half as Jamestown entered halftime with a 41-19 lead.

With 34 points scored in the second half, the Blue Jays (6-2, West Region 5-2) had five girls finish with at least 10 points.

Sophomore guard Symone Beld led Dickinson with nine points while Jung and Rodakowski ended the night with eight and two points, respectively.

“Gabby and Audrey were both in foul trouble early. We didn’t play Dickinson basketball tonight,” Midgets head coach James Hayden said after the loss. “We have to learn from tonight, move on, and get ready for a tough week ahead.”
