Girls Basketball Roundup: Freshman Hemminger leads McComb past H-L

BASCOM – Coach Rod Daniel and Hopewell-Loudon are likely not looking forward to seeing more of McComb’s Nora Hemminger. But, for he and his Chieftains, they’ll be seeing a lot more of her the next three years when H-L joins McComb in the Blanchard Valley Conference.

The Panther freshman poured in 23 points in a 60-42 win over Hopewell-Loudon. Emily Clymer backed her with 15 points and Brenna Dee chipped in eight.

Hope Brickner’s 11 points led Hopewell-Loudon (4-4). Aleta Daniel added nine and Sicily Leiter tallied eight. Brook Arbogast had six points and a team-high seven rebounds, but McComb (6-3) enjoyed a 38-19 advantage on the glass for the night.

Foul line kind to Adelsperger, Warriors

RICHWOOD – Fourteen of Kasey Adelsperger’s 27 points came from the foul line as Mohawk went on the road to defeat North Union 50-43.

Adelsperger went 14 of 17 at the foul line and also pulled in a team-high eight rebounds for the Warriors.

Ally Weinandy added 15 points for Mohawk.

Park paces Lakota

KANSAS – Katie Park’s double-double put Lakota over the top against Eastwood.

Park had 11 points and 10 rebounds, helping the Raiders overcome a chilly night at the free throw line to beat the Eagles 50-48.

Lakota won despite going just 5 of 21 at the stripe. The Raiders also turned the ball over 43 times.

But paced by Park and Morgan Mowry, who had 10 points, Lakota held off an 18-point fourth-quarter by Eastwood and held on to win.

Morgan Gangwer had six rebounds for Lakota.
