Coach Brady Jasper said that after beating Holton in the season opener, the Red Hawks have picked up two more wins over Royal Valley and Sabetha.
After a slow start at Royal Valley, HMS got it going in the second quarter, Jasper said. “Behind 9 first half points by Kaeleigh Ruckman, they opened up a 20-11 halftime lead,” Jasper said. “They beat the Panthers 12-2 in the third quarter and cruised to an easy victory, 32-15.”
Ruckman finished with 11 points. Adison Williams and Lainey Nelson had 6 points each.
On Tuesday, HMS hosted Sabetha. Jasper said the Red Hawks put together a 13-0 run in the first half to build a comfortable lead.
“A solid second half would help secure a 26-17 win,” Jasper said. “Claire Twombly had her best performance of the season. She led the Red Hawks in scoring and rebounding. Balanced scoring and aggressive defense has helped the team to an undefeated 3-0 start.”
