Hawks Sets New School Record

The Ontario girls basketball team opened a 24-14 first quarter advantage and cruised to an easy 76-52 Greater Oregon League win Saturday over Grant Union in John Day.

Ontario's Stephanie Hawk broke the Ontario school record, for most points in a game, with 37 points. Hawk broke the old record of 34 points set in 1993 by Erica Walton.

"Stephanie had a great game," Ontario head coach Jon Buck said. "She was a recipient of some great passes tonight."

Ontario finished with 27 assists, including Jena Ogawa's team-high nine. Andrea Arant had six, while Hawk finished with four assists.

Hawk finished 16-of 24 shooting from the field, while the Tigers were 31-of-59 for 52-percent.

Mac-Hi was just 40-percent (22-of-55) shooting.

The Tigers pushed the 10-point bulge to 12, at halftime, 37-25. Grant Union continued to struggle against the Ontario defense, scoring just 12 points, to trail 57-37 after three quarters.

"This was quite a contrast from Friday night's slow down game against Mac-Hi," Buck said of a 42-17 win over the Pioneers. "This game was quite a track meet. We did a great job of passing, especially for the fast paced game that it was."

The Tigers committed just 10 turnovers, in the up-and-down game, while the Prospectors struggled with 20 offensive turnovers.

Maggie Smith-Davidson added 14 points, on 5-of-10 shooting, including 3-of-4 from the 3-point line.

Amy Jones paced the Prospectors with 14 points and five rebounds, while Ashley Thunell added 12 points and four rebounds.

The Tigers (7-4 overall, 2-1 GOL) return to action tonight at Emmett.
