Peninsula Daily News

VANCOUVER, Wash. — The Peninsula College women’s basketball team opened the Clark Crossover Tournament with a 67-59 win over Mount Hood thanks to a record-setting rebounding game by Gabi Fenumiai.

Fenumiai, a freshman from Juneau, Alaska, pulled down 23 rebounds for the Pirates on Friday to break teammate Madison Pilster’s school record of 21 rebounds set last month.

Twelve of Fenumiai’s rebounds came off the offensive glass. She also scored 17 points, trailing only Alison Knowles, who had 18, for the team high.

Pilster had a solid effort on the glass as well, grabbing 12 boards (six offensive) and scoring 16 points.

Guard Pherrari Brumbaugh grabbed nine rebounds (five offensive) and dished out a team-high four assists.

Peninsula scored 21 second-half points and limited the Saints (1-8) to 10.

With the win, the Pirates (3-5) guaranteed themselves at least a fourth-place finish in the Clark Crossover.
