Idaho Falls vs Skyline girls basketball

Skyline’s Sophia Anderson goes up for the shot in Tuesday’s game at Idaho Falls.

At Idaho Falls High School, freshman Mattie Olson had a game-high 24 points for the Skyline High School girls basketball team in a 59-45 conference win over District 91 rival Idaho Falls.

Skyline head coach Ty Keck said Olson is starting to ‘elevate her game.’

“The freshman sense is kind of starting to wear off,” Keck said. “In reality, she’s becoming a varsity player. She elevates her teammates.”

Keck said the Tigers ‘came ready to play,’ leading 28-19 at halftime thanks to strong shooting and smooth passing. The Grizzlies responded with a 22-point third quarter, including going 6-for-6 from the foul line.

“We lost some defensive intensity in the third quarter,” Tigers coach David Vest said.

Annalise Cheret had 15 points for Skyline (8-10, 4-5), which hosts Shelley on Tuesday.

Olivia Hillam had 14 points and Madalyn Burton had 13 points for Idaho Falls (2-16, 2-7), which plays Tuesday at Hillcrest.
