Placeholder Image
SOUTH WAYNE - Black Hawk girls basketball coach Mike Flanagan was hoping to get every player minutes on Parents Night.

Black Hawk (13-1, 8-0 Six Rivers East) and ranked No. 7 in the Associated Press poll, did just that in rolling to a 46-9 win over Argyle Tuesday night.

"In the fourth quarter, we gave some of our reserves some great opportunities," Flanagan said. "On Parents Night, it worked out like we hoped it would work out."

The Warriors outscored the Orioles 15-0 in the first quarter. The Warriors led 31-2 at halftime and cruised from there. Black Hawk junior Rachel Rygh scored seven points. Black Hawk senior Kim Wellnitz scored a game-high 16 points to lead the Warriors. Senior Katie Place and junior Alyssa Piefer added six each.

Argyle sophomore Danielle Treuthardt led the Orioles with three points.

Black Hawk will play at Cassville in the Six Rivers Conference Challenge Friday.

Barneveld 41, Monticello 33

MONTICELLO - The Ponies couldn't sustain a hot start and dropped a Six Rivers East Conference game to Barneveld Tuesday.

Barneveld outscored the Ponies 27-14 in the second half to come back for the victory.

Monticello senior Mersadi Hilliard and junior Taylor Pfeuti each scored nine points. Monticello sophomore Becky Nelson added six.
