Cedar Springs Girls Basketball is off to their best start in recent memory. The team, off to a 4-0 start has outscored their opponents by an average of 19 points. Passing their first real test of the season, the team came from behind to defeat a scrappy Newaygo team 49-39.

Another strong start saw Cedar jump out to a 13-7 first quarter lead. Five different players scored during the first eight minutes of play.

Newaygo clawed all night and rallied in the 2nd period to tie the score 21-21 at halftime. The Lions jumped ahead by 8 points early in the third period before the Red Hawks got back on track. A pair of baskets by Junior Maggie Prins and a three-point bucket by classmate Avery Sparling helped spur a comeback in the third for a Cedar one point lead at the end of the quarter, 31-30.  

Junior Kaelyn Colclasure and Sparling each knocked down a three-pointer and the team hit 8 free throws in the fourth quarter to secure their fourth win in the opening two weeks of the season.

A balanced scoring attack was key to the Red Hawk victory. Prins led the scoring attack with 13 points and 9 rebounds followed by Colclasure and Sparling with 12 points each and Junior Arianna Rau hauled in a team high 13 rebounds.

The Lady Red Hawks will be back in action on Tuesday, December 17 when they travel to Big Rapids to take on the undefeated Cardinals and again on Friday, December 20 when they play at Northpointe Christian.
