Blazer girls rout Highland View

The Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers held Highland View Academy to four points in the second half and picked up a 47-16 victory Thursday evening in a non-league girls basketball game.

The Blazers (5-8) led only 10-7 at the end of the first quarter and 22-12 at halftime, but their defense allowed them to pull away in the second half.

“We were able to overcome a sloppy first half with strong pressure defense,” Blazers coach Corey Collins said. “Our press created a lot of our offense. We got better each quarter and look to build on this momentum to have a strong second half of the season.”

Makenna Morris and Emmalyn Hott each scored nine points, and Sydney Wiegand added eight to lead the Blazers. Wiegand contributed six steals, four blocked shots and three assists. Hott added seven steals and Morris had four.

Also filling up the stat sheet were Victoria Price with six points and six rebounds, Reagan Witmer with four points and six rebounds, Haven Moats with four points and three steals, Chloe Smith, Morgan Ward and Sophie Healey with two points each, and Julia Waltz with one point.
