Britton’s Double-Double Leads Hornets
As goes Mahalah Britton so goes the Hundred Lady Hornets, as the 5-11 junior recorded another double-double to her long list of growing statistics this season. She scored a game-high 18-points and 10-rebounds in helping the Lady Hornets beat Mapletown Jan. 24 by the score of 42-28.
Without the services of their star point guard, the ‘Jills had to rely on Britton to do the bulk of the scoring when the team needed a pick me up. But, not only did Britton give them a boost on offense she along with the entire team picked it up on defense so they could secure the “W”.
Addie Tuttle filling the void of Rachel Snedden departure, only scored 3-points, but her defense and ball handling were outstanding along with their only senior Sydney Duckworth, who scored 13-points, including a pair of bonus bombs.
In addition, Kayla Matthews picked up her game with a pair of field goals, while Kayley Davis and Kayla Aracich each scored a deuce.
