The Redhawks girls’ and boys’ basketball teams are back in action hoping to defend home court on Friday as they host the Wakeland Wolverines in District 9-5A play starting at 6:30 p.m.

Coming off of a 46-27 win against the Lebanon Trail Trail Blazers, the girls’ team is looking to continue their three game win streak against a disciplined opponent.

“This is going to be an opportunity for us to really get better in the half court,” head coach Ross Reedy said. “We are going to have to be able to play good half court defense and they are going to force us to execute offensively.”

The boys’ hit the court after the conclusion of the girls’ game, with the team hoping to carry momentum from Tuesday night when they beat the Trail Blazers 68-56.

“As a team our goal is to perform the way we did the first time on the defensive end,” senior captain Drew Johnson said. “We’ll give ourselves a great chance to capitalize on the other end and get the win if we do.”
