SALMON 62, TETON 33: At Salmon, the Savages raced out to an early lead in their season opener Saturday night, cruising to a solid win over the 3A Redskins.

Salmon junior Deshka Olson had four three pointers and led all scorers with 24 points. Teton guard Sadie Cook led her team with nine.

"The girls came out with great enthusiasm," Salmon coach Eric Bender said. "The rebounding was huge and we were able to capitalized on some great perimter passing. Everybody contributed on defense and it was a solid team win."
