Southwest Christian 50 Horizon 17
Southwest Christian used its three players over 5’10” to dominate the inside game in a victory over Horizon on Tuesday. Horizon had no one to match the height of its opponents, a bitterexperience that Hawks will hope to learn from. “We used it as a learning experience as we know we will be facing more tall teams in conference play,” Coach Amanda Bellus said.
Larua Yates led the Hawks with 6 points, while Hannah Frost added 4 points and Jacque Mellow scored 3 points.
