On Monday night, the Lady Hawks defeated the Highlanders 54-35 to wrap up the first half of section play.

The girls pulled away and only let Baldwin score 15 points in the second half.

Leading scorers were Olivia Westphal with 22, Maddie Dziegowski with 13, and Maria Cerro with 10.

“We are one step closer to our goal, which is making playoffs,” said Kam Lach.

The girls basketball team is now 4-1 in the section and will face Oakland Catholic in a non-section game on Thursday at the Nest at 7:30 p.m.
