The Cedar Springs Girls Basketball (3-4 overall, 1-0 conference) team opened the new year and their OK Gold Conference play with a 54-17 win over Ottawa Hills this past Friday, January 7.

The Red Hawks left little doubt who was going to win the game, jumping to a 10-0 lead early in the first quarter. Senior Darrah Miller scored 11 of her game high 20 points (3-3 three pointers) in the opening 8 minutes.  

Leading 16-4 after the first period, the Red Hawks kept the pressure on and led 34-8 at halftime. Miller and fellow senior classmate Aubrie French each scored 7 points in the 2nd frame. Senior Gracie Garchow added 4 points in the quarter as well.  

The Red Hawk defense remained locked in allowing only a single Ottawa Hills basket in the third period.  Balanced scoring for the ladies saw 7 different players each score 2 points in the quarter for a 48-10 lead after the 3 quarters of play.  

Cedar Springs had their best shooting night of the season, making 54 percent from the field. In all, 10 of the 13 players dressed scored in the game.  

Miller scored 20 points, hauled in a team high 6 rebounds, and dished out 6 assists.  French was the other Red Hawk in double figures with 12 points. Junior Brooklyn Colclasure dished out a team high 7 assists.

The Red Hawks return to action this Saturday when they take on FH Eastern at Aquinas College at 10:00 a.m. The game will be played in conjunction with AQ/Cornerstone games (Women 1:00 p.m. – Men 3:00 p.m). 

Former Red Hawk Brighton Miller, and current Aquinas College Women’s Basketball Player, put together a Cancer Awareness/Benefit event in support of Coach Duke Saboo (current Varsity Assistant Coach) and Coach Justin Harnden (current CS Teacher and Varsity Girls Soccer Coach).

In addition to the basketball games, the event will feature activities, silent auction, and T-Shirt sales in order to raise money to split between the coaches.  If you are unable to attend the game, a GoFundMe has been set up as well.  Just visit:
