GIRLS BASKETBALL: Gall leads Hanford over Connell

By the Tri-City HeraldDecember 6, 2013 

The Hanford Falcons are hoping for a strong finish this year in girls basketball, returning all but two players from last year’s roster.

Hanford got off to a good start Friday night with a 64-30 nonleague road win over Connell, as the Falcons got 29 points and 14 rebounds from Colette Gall and 13 points from Ashley Stewart to get their season off on a winning note.

“It was a really good opener for the season,” Hanford coach Evan Woodward said. “Any time a group out rebounds another team 47-22, that’s pretty good. They worked really hard for that.”

Shelby English led Connell with 10 points.
