SkyHawk basketball was off to a rocky start this evening when the girls’ varsity faced off against Bishop Heelan High School. The Crusaders of Heelan put up a great fight on defense and were able to take the first half with a lead of 21-18.

The second half fared somewhat better for the SkyHawks. A back-and-forth tie battle held the crowd in suspense from start to finish. Though the SkyHawk offense was strong, the opposing defense remained intact; come the final buzzer, Bishop Heelan snagged the game 52-45.

“Our players executed the game well and we had many overall successful plays, though we had a few unfortunate turnovers toward the end,” said girls’ varsity basketball coach Marty Plum.

Later in the evening, Skutt Catholic boys’ varsity basketball began their matchup with the Central High School Eagles. The SkyHawks started on a roll with quite a few 3-pointers under their belt that landed them a score of 29-18 at the end of the first half.

The second half of the boys’ varsity game started out very similarly to the first, however, the Eagles picked up their game and were able to catch a lead. The SkyHawks tailed close behind, tying the game up back and forth. Unfortunately, the game ended in an Eagle victory, 66-63.
