Cedar Springs girls basketball headed into district tournament action this week after picking up a pair of wins on the road the last week of the regular season.  

On Tuesday, February 26, the Lady Red Hawks made the trip to the lakeshore to take on Mona Shores.  After giving up 16 points in the first quarter, the defense stepped up and only allowed 13 total points over the final three quarters to win 41-29.

Senior Brighton Miller led the Red Hawks with 18 points. Sophomore Maggie Prins hauled in 9 rebounds on the night.

On Thursday, February 28, the ladies closed out their regular season winning a nail biter at Lowell. Cedar Springs jumped out to an early lead, before Lowell answered for a three-point halftime lead. Lowell continued in the second half building an 8-point lead midway through the third quarter. Cedar Springs answered the run to pull within one point at the end of the third.

With Lowell leading by three with under a minute to play, Sophomore Avery Sparling found Junior Kyla Andres under the goal for an easy basket to cut the lead to one. After rebounding a missed Lowell free throw, Cedar Springs guard Brighton Miller put the Red Hawks in front with a layup with 16 seconds left in the game. Lowell was unable to score in the final seconds and the Hawks earned a 37-36 victory.

Miller led the Red Hawks with 14 points followed by classmate Courtney Pienta with 9. Arianna Rau hauled down 12 rebounds followed by Sparling and Andres with 7 apiece.

At press time Wednesday evening, we learned that the girls got a big win over Forest Hills Central in district semi-final action. They will play Friday night, March 8, at Northview High School, for the district championship at 7 p.m. Come out and support your Lady Red Hawks!
