Hawks show promise in Solano Tournament!

Game One: Feather River College

Yes it was a loss but the Hawks were up early in the fourth qtr by double digits and it slipped away even though they had a chance late to tie it up. The 84-81 loss was a springboard for the next night's game as the Hawks were angry and wanted a win against anyone.

Against the Golden Eagles the Hawks had four players in double figures as Jasmine Chapman led the way with 19 points, 4 blocks, 3 assists and, 2 steals.

Daija Ward had another solid all around game with 18 points 8 rebounds, 6 steals, 2 blocks and assists for her nights work.

Game Two:  Los Medanos College

The Hawks came out with Fire in their eyes and took it out on Los Medanos by the tune of 102-34. As Coach Sage put it, "The team was really upset about the Friday game and just wanted to beat somebody, and they played really well."

A 100 point performance for the Hawks is something Sage never remembers in her tunure at all, "No, we have never had a 100 point game and even more important I don't think there has ever been a 70 (68) point victory either in the program. We did a lot of things really well and it was good for the team to see something like this happen and show them that they are capable of it, we just need to get that kick to get over the hump regularly."

The Hawks had 50 rebounds on the night of which 22 were offensive while having 21 assists and an incredible 34 steals and interestingly enough only 1 blocked shot. 

Trina Shaner led the way with 22 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 steals. Shaner shot 3-8 from the 3 point arc as the Hawks had one of their best efforts from there making 6 of 17.

Daija Ward followed with 20 points and 9 rebounds along with her 5 steals.

Nayani Gordon had 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 steals for the Hawks.

QuoQuese Jackson had the only double-double for the Hawks as she had 14 points and 11 steals as well as her 6 rebounds.

Both Trina Shaner and Jasmine Chapman had 8 points for the Hawk sbut both were cold from the floor which was a key to the Hawks demise as they only shot 26 % from the field on the night.
