The Huntington North High School girls' varsity basketball team cruised to its fifth win in its last six games with a 63-32 blowout of visiting Fort Wayne North Side on Monday, Feb. 2, in a game rescheduled due to weather.

The Lady Vikings improved to 9-10 on the season by burning the Lady Redskins, 14-2, in the opening quarter, and holding a commanding 35-16 lead by halftime. A 15-3 third quarter laugher made the score 50-19 heading into the final stanza, affording Coach Kelly Jones the opportunity to empty her bench.

Taylor Foley again led HNHS with 12 points and eight rebounds. Liesl Davenport with 11 points and Tajsha Shrock with 10 points provided back-up, and Alyssa Hurlburt and Jessica Ehler added nine and eight, respectively.

Shrock's night also included seven rebounds and two assists, and Davenport contributed more than points with three assists and three steals.

The Lady Vikes knocked down 24 of 43 field goal attempts for 55.8 percent, including hitting 7 of 12 three-pointers. Davenport nailed three bombs to lead HNHS.

The visitors, who shot just 14 of 46, 30.4 percent on the night, were led by Imani Freeman with 16 points and Kahaita Collins with 10 points.

The Lady Vikes' junior varsity was even more dominant against their North Side opponent, winning 54-11.
