Junior Annie Korff (17 points), senior Morgan Harris (16 points), senior Renee Poulos (12) and freshman Claire Gritt (11) led Hersey's girls basketball team in a 70-40 victory at Palatine on Tuesday night in a Mid-Suburban League crossover.
Poulos, Gritt and Korff each had 7 rebounds while freshman Kelly Weyhrich handed out 4 assists and Gritt made 5 steals.
"Palatine went on some nice runs in the third quarter but Renee (Poulos) always seemed to step up and hit a big shot to answer," said Huskies coach Mary Fendley, whose team, now 6-0, is off to its best start in her 16 seasons.
Palatine (3-3) was led by Sami Heuertz (16 points) and Erin Mayer (14).
Barrington 46, Buffalo Grove 37: Bailee McDonald (16 points), Angie Kirchoff (13) and Megan Talbot (12) paced host Barrington (6-0) in the MSL crossover. All three also had 6 rebounds while McDonald had 2 blocked shots and Kirchoff had 3 assists.
BG (3-3) was led by Maddie Welter (12 points) and Maddy Callahan (9).
"Bailee played a great game from beginning to end," said Barrington coach Babbi Barreiro. "She made some real nice baskets and defensively had a nice game. Angie and Megan were both solid, too."
Barreiro also credited Cassidy Goldsmith and Carrie Madden with good minutes off the bench.
