FREWSBURG — Jeff Collver had his team work especially hard on 3-point shooting in practice in recent days.
Then the Bears turned around and rewarded their coach in a big way on game night.
Led by Mikayla Gabalski-Jones’ 27 points, including six treys, Frewsburg rolled to a 66-36 victory over Westfield in a Division 2 West contest.
Gabalski-Jones wasn’t the only one hitting from distance.
All told, the Bears (12-8, 4-6) connected on a school-record 13 shots from the arc on 37 attempts, including nine in the middle two periods, on their way to the convincing victory.
“We had one 3 in the first quarter,” Collver said. “Then the floodgates kind of opened up.”

Carlson finished with 12 points; Chitester had 8 points and three assists; Sposato – back in the lineup after injury – added 7 points and five steals; Gabalski-Jones added seven steals; Alex Hultberg collected four steals; and Amanda Dilts hauled down 10 rebounds.
Katie Bodenmiller led the Wolverines with 7 points, and Mary Conklin and Haleigh Dellow added 6 apiece.
Frewsburg also claimed the junior varsity game, 60-36, to end the season 20-0, the only undefeated jayvee team in school history.
