Hebron Christian girls defeat Columbus Christian 61-31


The Hebron Christian girls basketball team improved its record to 3-0 on Saturday and will have a chance to rest and improve before their next game on Nov. 7. 
The Lady Eagles had some problems shooting from the field and from the free throw line in their first two games, but cleaned things up on Saturday. 
“I felt like we had a little preseason jitters on Monday and Tuesday,” Cotton said. “They showed up to play ball today and their shooting was superb and the free throw shooting was superb.”
Cotton said he believes his team made a lot of improvement in its most recent contest.
“The team I work with every day showed up,” Cotton said. “I think we’ve worked out some kinks and have more to do before we open regular season play.”
The game was close early on, as Hebron clung to a 10-9 lead after the first quarter, but built a 32-17 advantage at halftime en route to a 61-31 win.
Rachel McGrew led the Lady Eagles with 17 points, 16 rebounds, and five blocked shots. Cara Lee Smith added 15 points and seven rebounds, while McKinsey Wedel finished with 12 points and seven boards.
