Lady Red Hawks slip by Spartans

The Cedar Springs Lady Red Hawks Varsity Basketball team chalked up another win last week when they took on the Sparta Spartans at home, on Friday, December 17.

The Red Hawks took charge early, and finished out the first quarter with a 15-6 lead. The Spartans were not just going to lay down, however, and came back with a quick 10 points in the second quarter, and limited the Red Hawks to 5, ending the half at 20-16 Red Hawks. Play in the third was much the same, with the Red Hawks scoring only six points and the Spartans pumping out another 10 points to tie it up. The third quarter ended 26-26.  Cedar commanded the lead again the fourth quarter and outscored the Spartans 13-5, finishing the game with a 39-31 win.

Leading scorer on the night was Red Hawk junior Rachael Ludtke with 14 points, and the Spartans’ Karen Bacon had 13.

Also contributing for the Red Hawks was Tiffany Karger with 9 points, Hannah Wight with 6, Molly Holtrop with 5, Brittany Todd with 3, and Chaya Coxon with 2. Ludtke went 8 for 8 on free throws and snagged 9 rebounds. Wight and Coxon had three steals each.
