Hamburg picked up a pair of wins in girls’ basketball action last week, topping East Mills, 58-31, and Farragut, 45-31.

Losses were against South Page, 30-27, and Johnson-Brock, 69-27.

The Wildcats will travel to Farragut at 7 p.m. for district tournament action against the host team.
It will be the fourth meeting of Hamburg and Farragut this season.


South Page 30, Wildcats 27

A mishap on an out-of-bounds play complicated the end of the game in a Tuesday loss to South Page.
After a ball went out of bounds in the first quarter, South Page was incorrectly given possession and ended up scoring on the subsequent play.
The extra two points for South Page forced Hamburg, down three late, to put up a long-range shot just to tie.
Megan Gardner led the Wildcats in scoring with 11 points.



Wildcats 58, East Mills 31

After scoring 27 against South Page, the Wildcats bounced back with 34 in the first half on Thursday.
Coach Todd Quick said the Wildcats made more shots, and, as a result, were able to institute an aggressive press, which led to steals and easy buckets.
Paige O’Barsky had 16, as did Marissa Robinson. Megan Gardner had 12.


Wildcats 45, Farragut 31

Hamburg didn’t play its best game, but it did enough to beat Farragut for the third time this season.
“Honestly, we didn’t play that well,” Coach Quick said. “We played well enough to win. We made shots when we needed to.”
Megan Gardner had 11 and Kim Smith had 10 to lead the scoring.
