Senior Theryn Hallock continues to dominate girls basketball in Michigan, and Tuesday night was yet another statement to her case for Miss Basketball. Hallock had 33 points and a great night on the boards, leading the girls varsity basketball team to a 66-45 win over dominate East Grand Rapids.

“I thought overall it was a great team win,” coach Kristina Prins said, “we finally got some practices and games under our belt after the holiday and got in a groove at the right time.”

The second half brought more points from the Rangers’ role players. Junior Thea Sloat went one for two from the line while Maggie added another three points. Theryn continued to dominate the whole court, getting crazy steals and rebounds while adding 8 points to give the Rangers a 13 point lead at the end of the third.

In the fourth quarter, the Rangers brought out more role players to get in some quality minutes in the end. Delaney added a mid-range bucket, while fellow junior Maya Holser added a nice post move hook that went in. Along with them, senior Madison Wilkins scored a nice layup, and the Rangers secured a 66-45 win over East Grand Rapids. Maggie scored 10 points while Delaney and Maya each had 4 points.

“A great game on the boards and overall is a great game,” Prins said, “we’re looking forward to more conference play and keeping up the momentum.”
