Miquela Hanselman scored a game-high 18 points Monday to lead two-time defending Section Four Class D champion South Kortright to a 53-35 Delaware League girls basketball victory at Margaretville.
Hanselman’s night included an 8-for-10 showing at the free throw line. SK outscored the Blue Devils, 15-3, at the free throw line.
The unbeaten Rams played without senior forward Kayla Craft, a Fifth Team all-state pick a season ago. She averaged 17.6 points through SK’s first five games this season. Margaretville coach Kyle Holden said Craft missed the game with an unspecified injury.
“They’re still the team to beat,” Holden said of SK. “Even with Kayla Craft on the bench, they’re still very good.
“They were very aggressive tonight,” he continued. “We cut it to within eight points several times in the second half, but then we just ran out of gas.”
Brianna Laing scored 14 points and Tori Rockefeller contributed 11 for SK.
Sami Hunt scored 12 points to lead Margaretville (2-5, 1-3), which plays Wednesday at Andes.
