Hornets dominate the Skippers

Kirtland had little trouble improving to 5-0 overall on Saturday.

The Hornets outscored visiting Fairport Harding 25-0 in the first quarter and went on to win 54-14.

Jenna Sayle, who tied teammate Sydney Snyder with a game-high 16 points, scored 10 points in the first quarter.

“We had a lot of great steals and most of my points were in transition,” Sayle said. “We are an overall quick team, we make great steals and our game really flows in transition.”

Snyder hit a pair of 3-pointers in the first quarter and scored 13 of her 16 in the first half as the Hornets built a 34-2 lead.

Julia Camino came off the bench to finish with nine points and Amber Yurick added four. Lauren Snyder contributed with three points for the Hornets and Lauren Lutz, Rylee McCrory and Brandi Martz all pitched in with two.

Paige Hagedorn led Fairport with six points while Mikala Hucks finished with five.

Kirtland is now 2-0 in the Chagrin Valley Conference Valley Division.

“We still have some things to work out in the offense but we are doing great as a team,” Sayle said.

The Hornets travel to NDCL on Wednesday.
