GARDEN VALLEY — The Golden Sierra basketball teams closed out the season with Tuesday’s Senior Night, Sierra Delta League varsity twinbill with visiting Rio Vista — the boys easily winning 57-19 to avoid the cellar while the girls fell 36-27 in a battle for fourth place.

The Grizzly boys (7-16, 2-10) had little trouble with the seven-player under-sized Rams. After an uninspiring 10-2 opening quarter, Golden Sierra took off as Rio Vista had little answer for Jason Boyle (14 points) or Rocky Sacks (12) inside the paint.

The Grizzlies’ 22-6 third quarter padded their 23-9 halftime lead. Matt Smith went hard to the hoop in the fourth with driving layins as the hosts cruised to victory.

Seniors Boyle, Sacks, Smith and Bryson Campbell were honored before the game. Smith finished with eight points; Brenden Nutt had six; Campbell, Peter Biersteker and Brian Cann had four each; Jason Yurgelevic hit a three-pointer; and Nick White added a basket.

In the girls game, the Rams sank 5-of-6 free throws in the final 30 seconds to hold off Golden Sierra and spoil Senior Night for Stephanie Schrader, Sierra Monroe, Kenna Barth, Alix Nordby and Dessire Benedict.

The five started and needed a fifth league win to surpass Rio Vista in the standings. While the Rams shot just 19 percent from the floor, the Grizzlies shot 14 percent.

Though Schrader burried two threes in the fourth, Golden Sierra (6-20, 4-8) could not make up its deficit.

Monroe finished with seven points, eight rebounds and four blocks; Schrader had six; Barth grabbed 11 rebounds; Benedict pulled in nine boards; Jenna Pendzinski added eight rebounds and Becca Brown had six rebounds and five steals.
