The Redhawks took on the Wakeland Wolverines on Friday, with the girls’ team coming out with a dominant win (45-19), and the boys’ walking away with a loss.

“It always feels great to win, but we definitely have more stuff to work on,” senior Kyla Crawford said. “We are still working on finding our rhythm and working on our offense and defense.”

With only one game left for the girls’, the team has clinched another District 9-5A championship and is hoping to a long run in the playoffs.

“Our goal is to go to state and win the medal,” Crawford said. 

As for the boys, a slow start couldn’t be overcome as Wakeland got the win 49-45, leaving the team two games out of the final playoff spot with three games remaining. 

“It was a tough loss and we didn’t start fast enough,” junior James Hussey said. “We want to finish out strong and hopefully win out so we can make the playoffs.”
