The Hawk Freshmen basketball team came out fast this week as they were able to jump on the Apaches early.

It was a slow start for both teams until the Hawks applied pressure a few minutes into the game.

A few steals and quick passes later the Hawks were up for good in the game.

A 23-4 Halftime lead and hot shooting for the Apaches made this one a little more interesting than it seemed in the second half. The Apaches were able to rally to within 9 points until the Hawks applied pressure again.

“We put in a new press this week that is more of a risk reward press, tonight it just happened to be rewarded as they were only able to break it once.” Coach Barthels stated. “We had Wilkins get banged up a little on the first possession of the game, but Preiss stepped in and did a great job at the point guard tonight.”

The Hawks will need everyone to step up this week as Canyon Lake begins district play against a very tough district from here on out.

“All of the freshmen groups this year are tough in district.” Coach Barthels finished. “We are going to have to play our best basketball and be aggressive if we are going to beat the district teams this year.”
