CHISHOLM — Sophomore Parker Stevenson registered 19 points Thursday as Bethel’s girls plastered Blackwell 58-20 to stay alive at a Class 3A regional.

Stevenson was accurate on two 3-point field goals as Bethel moved to 7-10.

Teammates Hannah Davidson and Annie Compton, both sophomores, supplied 11 points each as well as two 3-pointers.

Sophomore Peyton Meiler added nine points on three treys.

“We got off to a slow start but got going after halftime, scoring on transitions,” said Bethel coach Tara Satterfield. “We’re just trying to survive and advance.”

Bethel took on the Perry-Crossings Christian loser in Friday’s regional encounter.
