North Marion girls bounce back with blowout over Weir

North Marion’s girls’ varsity team bounced back after dropping their last game with an 84-24 win over Weir Saturday.

The Lady Huskies, who lost Thursday night to Fairmont Senior, put together a complete game in the blowout coach Mike Parrish said.

“They came out and played good,” said Parrish. “They moved good and had good shots. They really played relaxed.”

The girls had four girls in double figures in the win.

Megan Haller led North Marion with 15 points.

Anna Marie Moscufo scored 13, Cara Egress added 12 and Christa Tobin scored 10.

Mackensy Hess scored seven points to go with her four assists and four steals, putting together a solid effort.

Brittany Sigley added nine points, Taylor Wells and Noca Singleton each grabbed nine rebounds and Pressly Tuttle hauled in six rebounds.

North Marion moves to 3-1 with the win.

They’ll play next on Dec. 17 when they host East Fairmont.
