The Highland Hawks won their first Delaney Athletic Conference game of the girls basketball season Tuesday, 45-36, over Fredericksburg Christian at home in Warrenton.
“Always good to get a win,” said Hawks coach Gary Leake, whose team improved to 6-4 overall and 1-0 in the DAC. “Fredericksburg was a very scrappy team.”
Senior Michele Micciche led Highland with 15 points and 10 steals, adding five rebounds and three assists. Freshman Erica Champion added 14 points and seven rebounds, while freshman Ashton Eicher had a season-high nine points off the bench.
“One of the keys that contributed to tonight’s win,” Leake said of Eicher.
Freshman Stephanie Hoerner added six points, all in the fourth quarter, and six rebounds.
“And played great defense on their top offensive player,” Leake said.
