Girls basketball: Hodgins sisters lead Riverhawks to win

December 21, 2013 

Delaney and Braydey Hodgins figure to be a handful for any team they face this season, but for a depleted Kamiakin squad they were overwhelming.

The Chiawana sisters combined for 41 points as the Riverhawks remained undefeated in league play with a 59-38 Mid-Columbia Conference victory Saturday in Kennewick.

Delaney, a senior committed to Eastern Washington, scored a game-high 25. Braydey, a sophomore, added 16.

Kamiakin had just eight players and continues to be without star Sira Toure, a four-year varsity player who is out with injury.

“We’re trying to stay positive,” Kamiakin coach Lane Schumacher said. “It is starting to get a little better, but it is a disappointing start to league.” The Braves open league 0-2 after falling to Richland on Friday.

“We played two great teams,” Schumacher said. “We could get beat by both of them with a full squad fairly easily too.”

Maysun Wellsandt’s 10 points led the Braves, who hope to have Toure back when league play resumes after the New Year.
