Girls Basketball beats Mound Fort 23-18

The girls were able to pick up a nice win last night at home against Mound Fort 23-18.  Emma Buehler Parton led the Hikers in scoring with 8 points and also had 6 rebounds for the team.  Malena Benson pulled down 12 rebounds in helping the team get the victory.

It was kind of an ugly and physical game.  Mound Fort does a great job of taking you out of your sets.  We didn’t run one play last night.  Coach James has his girls pressing and trapping the whole game, so all we wanted to do was try to space them out, find the open player, and attack the basket.  We played a pretty good first half, but came out slow in the third quarter.  We need to find a way to change this.  The girls were able to refocus and come back with a solid 4th quarter to secure the win.  Win or lose, I am proud of the effort the girls are giving each day.

The B team was able to pick up a good win as well beating Mound Fort 8-6.
