WAYLAND ? WACO senior Kiana Miller had a record-setting night on Saturday in Wayland. Miller hit six three-pointers in a 41-29 win, which lessened the sting of a 44-42 road loss to Burlington Notre Dame the night before.
Friday?s game at Notre Dame was the tightest contest of the year for the Warrior girls. WACO trailed 26-22 at halftime and 40-34 after three quarters, but nearly pulled off the comeback in the fourth quarter, with an 8-4 advantage.
Miller scored 13 points in Friday?s loss. Clara Schmitz had seven points. Kristen Conelly scored six points and led the squad with seven rebounds. Ashleigh Hallett and Aubri Garnsey scored four points a piece and Ndiyah Brown finished with three.
WACO?s defense shut down Keota 13-0 in the first quarter. Miller was on fire all first half, hitting four three-pointers over the first two periods to lead the Warriors to a 26-10 advantage.
Keota outscored WACO 19-15 in the second half, but the Eagles ran out of time and the Warriors held on to a 12-point win.
Miller hit two more threes in the second half to break the school record. She finished the night 6-12 from down town and led the squad with 19 points and five steals.
L. Graber scored six points in Saturday?s win. Kristen Conelly had five points. Aubrie Garnsey had four points and eight assists, and Morgan Graber finished with four points and seven rebounds. Ashleigh Hallett scored two points, and Schmitz finished with one.
WACO moved to 2-4 after the weekend. They will be back at home tonight (Tuesday) when they take on Van Buren. That game will begin at 6 p.m.
