The Cedar Springs Girls Basketball team claimed two victories last week over Conference foes Northview and Lowell.  

After a slow start against Northview last Tuesday, the team turned up the heat defensively and cruised to a 42-15 victory.  

Taking a 7-2 lead after the first quarter, the Red Hawks put 15 on the board in the second quarter behind three pointers from Juniors Kaelyn Colclasure and Jenna Powell. Colclasure scored 7 of her 9 points in the quarter giving Cedar Springs a 22-9 lead going into the locker room.

The defense remained stingy in the second half allowing Northview 6 total points over the final 16 minutes for the 42-15 victory.  

Scoring was spread evenly among the team. Colclasure’s nine points led all scorers, followed closely by classmate Maggie Prins with 7.

On Friday, January 24, the Red Hawks welcomed the Red Arrows of Lowell to town.  A back and forth game, the Red Hawks showed up big in the fourth quarter and downed the Red Arrows 48-39 for their second consecutive victory.  

Cedar Springs fell behind 0-4 to start the game before Colclasure and Sophomore Darrah Miller each nailed a three pointer.  Another basket by Colclasure gave the Red Hawks an 8-6 lead after 1 quarter.  

The second quarter was a battle of the defenses as the Red Hawks held Lowell to 5 total points and Cedar Springs was only able to muster 6 points.  Cedar led 14-11 at halftime.  

Lowell came to life in the third quarter outscoring the Red Hawks 17-10.  Colclasure and Miller each scored a pair of baskets, but it was not enough as Lowell took over the lead, 24-28, after three quarters.

After falling behind by 7 points early in the fourth quarter, the Red Hawk defense started to shine and the offense hit its stride. Cedar Springs held Lowell to just one point over the final 3:41 of the game and put up 24 fourth quarter points to secure a 9-point win.  

Senior Kyla Andres and Junior Arianna Rau each scored 8 points in the quarter, while Colclasure and Miller scored 5 and 3, respectively. The Red Hawks were 7 of 8 from the free throw line in the quarter.

Miller led all scores with 16 points, followed by Colclasure with 11 points and 5 rebounds, Andres with 9 points, and Rau with 8 points and 10 rebounds.  Prins pulled down 6 rebounds.

The Red Hawks (7-4 overall, 2-2 Conference) are on the road this week in OK White action as they travel to Greenville on Tuesday (1-28) and Ottawa Hills on Friday (1-31).
