After a dominant 58-25 win against Greenville last Friday, the girls varsity basketball team took on Cedar Springs in their second conference game of the season. The girls won the game 48-39 in a great team effort overall. 

Sophomore Theryn Hallock led the Rangers in scoring with 15 points on the night, followed by junior Zoe Lipke with 9 points. Junior Katy Majick also had herself a great night scoring, scoring 8 points and grabbing 4 rebounds. The defense also showed up for FHC against Cedar, as the team had a total of 15 steals. 

Another big reason for the FHC’s success Tuesday was the amount of depth the team had offensively. Six different Rangers climbed into the scoring column, and all scored in crucial situations. As soon as the Red Hawks began to climb back into the game and chip away at the FHC lead, the team hit some big shots to keep themselves in front of the Cedar Springs. The Rangers were able to get a big revenge win thanks to multiple offensive threats and end the game with a final score of 48-39. 

This win puts the Rangers at 6-3 on the season and 2-0 in the OK White Conference. FHC now shifts its attention to face the Lowell Red Arrows this Friday. The Red Arrows come into this matchup 3-4 and average around 37 points per game.

For the Rangers, they will need to shoot the ball well in order to succeed, as Lowell’s defense has been playing very well lately. FHC will need shooters like Zoe and Theryn to come up big and knock down shots to give FHC its fourth victory in a row.
