Jami Hodge fired in 24 points leading the Lady Broncos basketball team to a big road win at Louisburg, Jan. 21.
With the win, Spring Hill moved to 5-0 in the Frontier League, 8-1 overall, and look in good shape to defend their Top Gun Tourney title in Wellsville this week.
Spring Hill jumped to a 12-11 first-quarter lead and went up 34-25 by halftime. The Lady Broncos tacked on 21 second-half points to secure the win.
We scored 22 points in the second quarter and that really got us going,” said Coach Clay Frigon. “We got out and ran well and really stepped up the defensive effort.”
Hodge had a big night connecting on seven of 10 free throws and canning three treys.
Besides Hodge, Courtney Swope sank seven of 11 charity tosses and scored 15 points. Ericka Simpson had nine points; Macy Carbajo, three; Melody Hanson, two; and Mollie Ravnikar and Ashley Schoenhofer, one point.
Spring Hill, now ranked number one in The Kansas City Star small class poll, will try to defend its Top Gun Tournament title in Wellsville, Jan. 25-29.
First test comes at 5:15 p.m. Jan. 26 versus Anderson County. A win will land the Lady Broncos in a second round game versus either St. Mary’s or Piper on Jan. 27.
