Big Night Is Nothing Special for Vista’s Enger

Share via

It was just a typical game for Chris Enger, the Vista High School girls’ basketball player.

The 6-foot 4-inch center had 38 points, 19 rebounds and 14 blocked shots in less than three quarters as Vista defeated Fallbrook, 65-31, in Palomar League play at Vista.

“They just couldn’t stop her tonight,” Vista Coach Joe DeMaria said. “Defensively, she dominated and offensively, they couldn’t keep her from getting the ball.”


When Vista can get the ball inside to Enger, it will. It did so so much Thursday that its next high scorers (Kelli Schott and Renee Richardson) had six points each.

“We played probably our best game of the season tonight,” DeMaria said. “They didn’t match up well against Chris. Fallbrook’s center, Carol Reed, is only 5-9, and it’s pretty tough for her to stop somebody who is 6-4.”

Jennifer Tippett and Trisha Trujillo each scored seven points for Fallbrook (1-1, 10-3).
