Improving to 4-2, Holley posted a 36-29 win over host Medina in a non league girls basketball game this evening.

Sam Bates scored a game high 18 points and Alivia Wolf netted 14 to lead the way for Holley as Layne Walker and Zoey Wolf each added 2.

Rylee VanNostrand led Medina with 11 as Honesty Hill, Stella Poler and Alaia McGill each had 4 and Elaina Bitsas, Nevaeh Moss and Dani Williams 2 each.

Trailing 6-4 after the opening quarter, Holley used a 13-6 second period scoring edge to rally into the lead for good by a 17-12 margin at the half. Bates scored 7 and Alivia Wolf 4 to spark the Lady Hawks during that stretch.

Alivia Wolf then tallied 10, including a pair of threes, and Bates had five, including a three, in the third period to help Holley open up an 11 point, 32-21, advantage heading into the final stanza.
