Girls basketball: Hockinson 57, Ridgefield 28

Published:

 

Senior Night turned into a celebration for Hockinson.

The Hawks (13-7, 5-3) wrapped up the No. 2 seed in the 2A GSHL with a lopsided win that saw the entire roster play significant minutes.

Hockinson will open district tournament play Friday by hosting Black Hills, which is ranked No. 6 in the latest Associated Press state 2A poll.

Hockinson coach Damon Roche believes his team is up for the challenge.

"We've been playing some good basketball lately," he said. "We're starting to accomplish a few things."

Hockinson's pressure defense held Ridgefield in check early as the Hawks built a 27-5 halftime lead.

Mackenzie Blalock, who moved up from JV before Tuesday's win over Washougal, had nine points and five rebounds.

"She has proven her worth two nights in a row," Roche said.

Ridgefield finishes its season 6-14 overall, 1-7 in league.
