Lady Hawks continue rise...

COUNTRY CLUB HILLS - It was senior night for the Lady Hawks and they were facing the Meteors (23-2) who were playing they're third game with out Karisma Chapman, took an early lead of 21 -12 in the first quarter. Senior center Ariel Rouse got into early foul trouble resulting for Coach Maniatis to rotate more players.

This proved to be a solid solution. In the second quarter, the Lady Hawks obtained the lead at the half 36-35.
In the second half, Hillcrest began running a 2-3 zone which turn the tide where they held the Meteors scoreless for over 7 minutes coming down the stretch and took a 10 point lead - 51 - 41.

“We did a lot of little things we needed to be victorious,” Hillcrest coach John Maniatis said. “We felt that with Chapman not being out there that we would be able to expose a possible weakness that they have and that’s their outside shooting. We made an adjustment to go to a 2-3 zone and that enabled us to pack it in.”

Uniquah Hampton finished the game with 16 points, 9 rebounds, 6 steals and 5 assists to upset T.F. North 61 - 54. “We had to play as a team,” Hampton said. “I think our defense brought us this win.”

Jeanise Randolph scored a game-high 18 points, but was scoreless for most the third quarter and all of the fourth.
Centrese McGee had 15 points and 10 boards for T.F. North.  The Meteors will find out more information on the MRI perform on Chapman Friday.

Rouse scored 7 points in her last regular season game for Hillcrest. "I just had to compose myself and try to play the way I knew I could," said Rouse. Down the stretch she had a couple of big rebounds and defensive stands to seal the victory. In fall, she hopes to attend either University of Illinois (Springfield) or Iowa University.

In addition, senior Jamie Nelson scored 8. Nelson didn't play in the fourth quarter due to receiving an elbow to the left eye. "I'm okay now. I was just a little dazed," she said to us after the game. "I just

wish I could have been out there with my team for my last regular season game on this court." Upon graduation, Nelson is headed to Spelman to pursue her dream of studying pre-Law.
