The season is in its wind-down for the CCGS/SPL Lady Hawks’ basketball program.

On Oct. 29, the eighth grade squad improved its record to 7-4 with a win over Bismarck in which Haven Meyer led all scorers with 18 points.

The Lady Hawks jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter, 9-3, and never looked back. Quarterly scores were 13-6 at the half, 21-13 at the end of the third, and 28-17 for the final.

Hannah Kollmann and Sophie Duis combined for eight pounds and 18 rebounds while Aubrey Wagner drove in a layup for two and pulled down seven boards.

Head coach Ginger Meyer said, “This was a good win. We’re playing well – really good defense, strong rebounds. It’s fun to coach the Lady Hawks!”
