STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — For the second straight year, the Hayden High School girls basketball team are the champions of the Manila (Utah) Tournament.

They defeated Dugway 60-10, holding a 32-4 lead at the half. In the title game against Manila, the Tigers emerged victorious, 56-26 on Saturday, Dec. 7.

On Friday, the Lady Tigers started off a little slow. They led Green River 23-4 after one quarter of play, but over the next two quarters, Green River outscored Hayden 24-17. Hayden finished with 14 in the final frame for a 54-31 win.

The Tigers dominated Intermountain Christian School 68-19. Hayden scored just 10 in the first quarter, but put up 23 and 21 in the second and third. All the while, the Tigers limited ICS to no more than six points in a quarter.

Senior Alex Camilletti was the top scorer for the Tigers in all four games, scoring 68 points over the course of the weekend, including five 3-pointers in the final matchup.

Camilletti didn’t do all the work though, as Hayden spread the offense around to nearly every player in each contest.
