Seaman's girls basketball team continues to show improvement, a point the Vikings drove home Wednesday night in a 40-29 Centennial League win over Junction City.

The Vikings had dropped a 41-37 decision to the Blue Jays eight days earlier, but took control early in the rematch, building a double-digit advantage by halftime.

Seaman, which improved to 5-9 overall and 5-6 in the league, took a 12-5 first-quarter lead and were in control by a 24-11 margin at the half.

The Vikings struggled offensively at times, hitting just 15 of 57 shots (26.3 percent) on the night, but Seaman turned in a solid defensive performance, with Junction City's 15-point third quarter the only time the Blue Jays scored more than 6 points in a quarter.

Junction City shot 27.8 percent and committed 17 turnovers.

Freshman Taylin Stallbaumer led Seaman with 12 points while sophomore Carstyn Anderson added 9 points and senior Riley Cowan 8.

Senior Mellana Davis led Junction City (5-11, 3-9) with 12 points while senior Lucy Rivera added 10.
