“We were battling illness. Makayla Morrison was out and a few others have been under the weather and we had to make some adjustments on the fly,” said Head Coach Jay Baldwin.
The Hawks held Ellah Kissel to just 12 points on the night. Kissell is one of the top scorers in the Southeast Iowa Superconference right at 20 points per game.
Karlie Pohren had nine rebounds for Central Lee.
