Hazen Hoops update
By Jarann Johnson
Basketball is in full swing. Hazen fans got to see the Hazen boys and girls team collect home wins last week.
Hazen’s girls started off the week with a home win vs. Garrison. Garrison features Shelby Gehring, a player who’s in contention for Region 5 Senior of the year. Hazen did a great job of making sure Gehring and Garrison got off to a slow start.
Hazen only allowed Garrison to score two points in the first period and led 16-2 after one period. Hazen girls coach John Ward said his team’s goal for the game was to start strongly on defense and get some easy scores.
“We wanted to come out and do it on the defensive end. See if we could get some easy baskets and then work our way in. The girls made some nice shots, they made some 3-pointers because they were able to kick it back out,” Ward added
