Lady Hawks earn first win by downing Reardan
The Cheney High girls basketball team finally found the win column, and in the process earned first-year head coach Shannon Root her first varsity victory with a 53-39 win last Tuesday at Reardan.
The Lady Hawks started fast against the defending 2B state champion Indians, capitalizing on 10 first quarter turnovers to open a 14-3 lead, expanding it to 23-10 at intermission and never being seriously challenged after that. The win served as a nice salve for the team after suffering a pair of season-opening losses, including a 56-16 drubbing at the hands of a very good Ellensburg Dec. 7.
