High school girls basketball roundup: Rylee Langerman leads Christian Heritage Academy past Southwest Covenant
Rylee Langerman stole the ball and scored over a defender on the other end of the floor. On the ensuing play, she blocked the Patriots’ shot just before the first quarter buzzer sounded. The play capped off a 17-point first quarter by Langerman.
“She’s our go-to,” said Christian Heritage coach Lisa LittleJim. “Every night she brings the same intensity. She’s why we get wide open shots at times. She really makes us go.”
With a 30-point performance, Langerman led Christian Heritage Academy over Southwest Covenant, 60-36, Friday night at Jim Elliot Memorial Gymnasium.
“We did a good job of moving the ball, especially in the first half, and we were knocking shots down, which is not what we did on Tuesday night so this was a big improvement,” LittleJim said.
As a team, Christian Heritage knocked down 13 3-pointers and forced 25 turnovers to bounce back from Tuesday night’s loss to Luther. No. 8 Christian Heritage improved their record to 12-6.
Del City 50, Shawnee 33
Del City was desperate for a win. The Eagles were frustrated as they entered Friday’s matchup at Shawnee on a three-game losing streak.
Del City bounced back from its recent slump and got a much-needed confidence boost, defeating Shawnee 50-33.
The Class 5A No. 12-ranked Eagles dominated the game, leading 19-6 as they entered the second quarter. They continued to build their lead before pulling away for the win.
“We set the tone early by playing good defense, getting what we wanted to get, getting in the passing lanes,” Del City coach Mariah Webb said.
BB Polk and AJ Smithers each had 16 points for the Eagles, who improved to 8-8. With the loss, No. 13 Shawnee fell to 7-9.
Crossings Christian 43, Oklahoma Christian School 26
Ashlyn Darter drove the lane and rose for a layup.
Crossings Christian's senior guard was fouled, but it didn't affect her. She finished the layup and gave a fist pump before high-fiving a couple teammates.
Darter led the Knights to a 43-26 win against Oklahoma Christian School on Friday. She led all scorers with 16 points and was a menace defensively. Camden Furnish added 10 points.
CCS (11-8) benefited from a flurry of OCS turnovers, capitalizing with fast-break points.
Hannah Vaskuhl led OCS (1-15) with eight points.
