Watauga opens WBB season with a win over Charlotte’s Chambers High School, 55-43

By David Rogers. CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Junior Charlotte Torgerson was perfect from the free throw line — and dropped in four cruise missiles from beyond the 3-point arc — while sophomore Kate Sears scored a game high 25 points (including 11-of-13 from the free throw line) as Watauga ran by Chambers High School (formerly Vance High School), 55-43, on Nov. 18.

Torgerson’s 20 and Sears’ 25 points accounted for all but 10 of the Pioneers’ offensive output, while Kaitlyn Darner added four points and Diane McGlamery, Brooke Scheffler, and Laurel Kiker added a bucket each to complete Watauga’s scoring.

Sears was obviously a focal point of the Pioneer offense in the fourth quarter as the Cougars fouled intentionally in the late minutes. Already with multiple college offers in her pocket (has not committed to any of them), Sears was good on 9-of-10 free throws in just the final stanza.

Opening the season 1-0, Watauga goes on the road again Wednesday, Nov. 23, at Shelby (3:30 p.m.) before another non-conference tilt at the Charlotte Hoops Challenge vs. Myers Park High School, 12:00 noon, on Saturday, Nov. 26, at Harding High School’s Eric T. Ward Athletic Center.
