Lady Hornets basketball unable to keep up with Dons

The Lady Hornets started the game missing their first eight shots. The visiting Dons took advantage jumping out to a 16-0 lead.

Santa Ana was led by Taylor Ivicevic who scored 23 points. The Dons had three players end the game in double figures. Blaysen Varnadoe had a double-double scoring 15 points and grabbing 14 rebounds. The Dons shot 40 percent in the game and out rebounded the Hornets 50-34

The Hornets were never able to get any momentum going and never got within 10 points of the Dons after the first quarter.

Santa Ana lead 18-5 at the end of the first quarter and extend the lead 34-18 at the half.

In her last home game as a Hornet Emilee Dy showed a no quit attitude like she has displayed all season. Dy accounted for all five of the Lady Hornets first quarter points and either scored or assisted on 17 of the Hornets first 22 points.

Dy ended the game with 14 points.

According to Hornet head coach Marcia Foster, Dy is a true leader and stepped up this season when the team needed her most. It’s easy to laugh and have a good time when things are going well, but when things aren’t going your way true leaders rise and that is what Dy did this season.

A bright spot coming off the bench for the Hornets was Madeline Calvert who lead the team with 16 points. Calvert shot 70 percent from the field in only 8 minutes of play.
