Girls Basketball

The Sandoval Lady Hawks beat the Wayne City Lady Indians in front of a packed gym on their first annual Silent Night Game.  Coach Brenda Kunick says the Lady Hawks had trouble finding an offense to fall until the 3rd quarter and they also had trouble with starters being in foul trouble, but were still able to come away with a win and that's what counts.  The Lady Hawks were led by Junior Christonia Saddler with 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 blocks.  Katie Jo Bryan added 11 points.  The Lady Hawks will take on Ramsey Wednesday night as their final game until after holiday break.  The Lady Hawks are now 8-1
