The Cedar Springs girls basketball team dropped a pair of conference games last week, losing 22-40 to Forest Hills Northern on Tuesday, January 8, and 44-53 to Forest Hills Central on Friday, January 11.

In a first half that saw both teams struggle to score, Cedar Springs led 6-5 mid way through the 2nd quarter before Northern went on a small run to lead 15-8 at the half. After falling behind by 20 points at the end of the third quarter, the ladies put together a nice fourth quarter. 

Sophomore Arianna Rau led the Red Hawks scoring 10 points and hauling in 5 rebounds.

On Friday, Forest Hills Central jumped out of the gate to a 21-point first half lead.  Cedar used its pressure defense to force Central into numerous turnovers, and shots started to fall. The lead was cut to 6 points in the fourth quarter but the first half hole proved to much to dig out of.

Sophomore Avery Sparling led the Red Hawk attack with 14 points. Fellow sophomore Kaelyn Colclausure followed with 8 points and 7 rebounds. Rau scored 7 points and hauled in 7 rebounds on the night.

The Lady Red Hawks were back in action this week with a non-conference home game against North Pointe Christian on Tuesday night, January 15, and they hit the road again on Friday, January 18, with a conference game at Northview. Boys games start at 5:30 p.m. followed by the ladies at 7:00 p.m. both nights.

Cedar Springs is 4-4 overall on the season.
