Waterville’s girls varsity basketball team started the two-week season with three wins.
Waterville traveled to Holland Patent to take on the Golden Knights on the road and had an original shaky start to the game. The second and third quarters they absolutely ran away with it, breaking out of a tough rugged defensive battle. The Indians scored 17 points in the third quarter.
Waterville had some nice open shots on the fast break and seemed to run Holland Patent out of their own gym. The top scorers for Waterville were Natalee Collins with 15 points and Janelle Cleary with 8 points.
Also scoring: Megan Wittenbeck 4, Paige Cornish 5, Laney Hinman 6, Sydney Hajdasz 2, Eleonore Collins 3.
Hinman and N. Collins each had 8 rebounds and E. Collins had 7.
The team kicked off their first game and Senior Night with a dominant 52-32 win against the Westmoreland Bulldogs.
Despite a slow start by both teams Waterville was able to clean up their mistakes and beat the brakes off of Westmoreland running them off the court.
Waterville was able to put together a 34-point second half in their win.
