High School sports round-up

By Josh Howald

The Kincardine District Secondary School senior girls basketball hammered on Walkerton last week to remain undefeated and first overall in the Bluewater Athletic Association North Division standings.

Marley Martyn paced the attack, scoring 14 points for the Knights in a lopsided 44-4 win over the Walkerton District Community School Riverhawks last Wednesday in Kincardine. Nicole Kreager had all four WDCS points in this contest.

The win improved the Knights to 3-0 in regular season action. Both John Diefenbaker Secondary School of Hanover and the Sacred Heart High School Crusaders also have six points, but are both 3-1 so first place belongs to Kincardine.
