Lady Hawks slow down Deerfield

The Heritage School girls basketball team gave up 17 points in the first quarter of Saturday's non-region game against Deerfield-Windsor, but put the defensive clamps on from there in a 39-31 win at home to cap off a successful weekend that began with Friday's GISA Region 1-AAA victory over Trinity Christian.

Kara Groover, who was coming off a 31-point effort against Trinity, led the Lady Hawks again with 18 points on 7 of 10 shooting from the field. Maggie Crosby added six points and Ansley Dieckmann had six in a comeback effort.

Heritage trailed 17-15 after one quarter but responded to take a 28-24 lead at halftime.

Less than 24 hours after its victory over Trinity Christian, the Hawks ran into a buzzsaw on Saturday, falling to Deerfield-Windsor 86-41 despite a team-high 11 points from Chase Evans.

Deerfield jumped out to leads of 20-9 after one quarter and 55-21 at halftime in the victory.
