HARTLEY - The Cherokee Washington High girls bookended the first and fourth quarters with nice scoring runs to demolish Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn 66-39 here Monday night in non-conference basketball action.

Cherokee's Kaely Hummel led the winners with a varsity career high 24 points, followed by older sister Megan Hummel's 17, Sara Ramirez 10, and Megan Carlson nine.

Jessica Stofferan paced the Hawks with 11 points, and Katie Mills added eight.

The WHS club cashed in just 21-75 field goals for a chilly 28 percent, but sank 8-20 three-pointers to compensate. The winners also made 14-16 free throws.

Megan Hummel led Cherokee in rebounding with nine, while Ariana Smith had eight, Kaely Hummel eight, and Alexia Gerdes seven. Kaely Hummel also paced her team in assists with seven, and Megan Hummel had six steals.

"I thought we did a nice job of forcing them into playing at a pace that was favorable to us," noted Cherokee coach Heath Hagberg.

"We did a good job of limiting them to one shot. Kaely had a outstanding first half with 21 points, going 5/7 from behind the three-point arc. She also set up her teammates well with a total of seven assists for the game."

The Cherokee girls (3-9) travel to Emmetsburg to resume Lakes Conference action Friday night.
