The St. Vincent High School varsity basketball teams repeated an earlier sweep of rival Tomales Tuesday night, but this time they did it on the Tomales court.
The St. Vincent girls got off to a good start and rolled to a 52-21 win.
St. Vincent led 11-3 at the end of the third quarter and was on top, 32-13 at the half.
Grace Jennings led the Lady Mustangs with 17 points, with Jacalyn Murphy adding nine and Ursyla Baumgaren eight.
Kayla Furlong and Janelle Kehoe scored five apiece for Tomales.
The St. Vincent boys, by contrast, started slowly, but rallied for a 59-41 win.
Tomales led 13-6 at the end of the first period, and 27-25 at the half, before the Mustangs took charge in the second half.
Evan Knight led the win with 18 points, with Mitch Sheppard scoring 15. Tyler McFadden led Tomales with 17 points.
Make ‘em Bleed
The Red Cross mobile blood bus will be parked outside Rohnert Park’s Cal Skate from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday for the second annual “Make ‘em Bleed” Roller Derby Blood Drive, a series of individual events that began Aug. 23 in Redwood City and will end in Rohnert Park. Athletes from Sonoma County’s two Roller Derby teams, Resurrection Roller Girls and Sonoma County Roller Derby, will be on hand to offer donors skate-shaped cookies, pose for photos, sign autographs, and hand out cool swag.
“People will be going in and out of Cal Skate all day long,” said Resurrection’s Sugar Snappy. “Roller Derby is an active, full contact sport, so it matches well with blood donations. We’ll be facilitating, not doing exhibition skating or anything like that.”
Last year the drives resulted in 220 pints, enough blood to save 660 lives. That total has already been exceeded this year, according to Hanna Malak, an account manager with the American Red Cross, with the goal of attracting 30 participants on Saturday.
The Roller Derby Blood Drive is sponsored by Brown Paper Tickets and the American Red Cross. Make an appointment at redcrossblood.org or (800) RED-CROSS. Walk-ins also are welcome.
