Hawks hold off Leyton


Despite a strong second half, Leyton’s girls squad fell short at the home of the Hay Springs Hawks, 36-31, in a non-district matchup on Saturday.

The Warriors, who returned to the court for the first time since Dec. 21, saw their record slip to 3-5 on the year. Leyton remains strong in the district, however, with a 2-0 mark.

Leyton’s scoring was spread out over eight players with Katy Ernest leading the way by tacking up 7 points. The other scorers included Shaela Jenkins (6), Kelsey Waite (5), Diedra Waite (4), Kaitlyn Berner (4), Dani McKay (2) and Carly Rushman (1).

Kelsey Waite was on top of the rebounding list with 15 including 7 off the offensive glass. Kelsey’s sister, Diedra Waite, pulled down 6 rebounds and McKay another 6. Kelsey Waite and Berner had 3 steals apiece and Diedra Waite had 3 blocks.

The Warriors take to the court again on Tuesday night in another non-distict contest at Bridgeport. They face rival Potter-Dix on Friday.
