On Monday, Feb. 7, the Lady Hawks (7-4, 9-9) defeated the Lady Macs of Canon-McMillan 63-38. This was their second section meeting of the season. The game was played at the Lady Hawks’ home court, and it was also Senior Night. 

The first meeting of these two teams resulted in a 63-42 victory for the Lady Hawks, so going into the second meeting between the teams, the Lady Hawks had high expectations. As such, they were very energized, and everyone was ready to take the floor. 

The Lady Hawks jumped on the Lady Macs very quickly, finishing the first quarter with a 12-5 lead for the Lady Hawks. Going into the second half, the Lady Hawks were up 28-17, with Emma Dziezgowski leading the way with 13 points. 

The Lady Hawks continued to bring this energy into the second half. The Lady Hawks were able to use their defensive strengths to hold the Lady Macs to only 21 points in the second half, while the Lady Hawks were able to put up 35 points.

Emma Dziezgowski, a senior captain for the Lady Hawks, put up 30 points for the Hawks on her senior night.

“It was a great win on Senior Night! We really came together as a team, and everyone on the floor had a chance to contribute,” said Dziezgowski.

The Lady Hawks have one section game left against Baldwin (5-6, 10-8) this Friday at 6 p.m. at Baldwin. If the Lady Hawks pull off the victory, they have a chance to finish second in their section. Good Luck to the Lady Hawks!
