High school basketball: East girls win again; Wonders sweep
GRANITE QUARRY — East Rowan’s girls basketball team beat Northwest Cabarrus on Monday, 49-28, in a non-conference game.
Adalie Harrison scored 13 to lead the Mustangs. Freshman Haley Dalton had her first double-figure scoring game with 11. Mary Spry added nine points, while Caroline Houpe and Leah Hinceman chipped in with six each.
“Northwest has improved, they’re big and they played hard, but we were tough defensively,” East coach Kevin Holland said. “Adalie was really tough, even when they tried to double her. There isn’t anything she can’t do.”
Dalton, who is a shot-blocker, keyed the Mustangs’ defense.
“She played well and was able to convert some of the shots she’s been missing,” Holland said. “She had several blocks and deflected a lot of passes.”
Spry had a good third quarter, as the Mustangs pulled away.
East has started 4-0 for the first time since the 2013-14 season.
“We didn’t have the same energy we had against Central Cabarrus last week, but it was a solid effort, something to build on,” Holland said.
Chaunesse Barringer led the Trojans (2-2) with 11 points.
NW CABARRUS (28) — Barringer 11, A.Fields 6, Gordon 4, T. Fields 2, Maddox 2, Strickland 2, Robinston 1.
EAST ROWAN (49) — Harrison 13, Dalton 11, Spry 9, Houpe 6, Hinceman 6, Eagle 4, Nwaford, Honeycutt, Miller.
NW Cabarrus 2 11 9 6 — 28
