At Rexburg, the Teton High School girls basketball team began the 3A District 6 tournament with a 34-19 win over South Fremont at Madison High School.

Both teams played good defense and it was a tight contest early, said South Fremont head coach Ryan Campbell.

“We manned them up and created some problems for them,” Campbell said. “On the flip side, they extended their defense and we had a hard time adjusting.”

Waklee Kunz had 14 points to lead No. 2 Teton (15-6), which plays Wednesday versus No. 1 seeded Sugar-Salem. Karlee Thueson had seven points for No. 3 seeded South Fremont (6-16), which plays Friday versus the losing team from Wednesday’s game.
