HARPETH- Creek Wood defeated the Lady Indians on Friday night, but the story of the night was Raegan Hohl breaking the Creek Wood record for 3-pointers made in a career. Hohl also led the Lady Red Hawks in scoring with 18 and helped put away Harpeth with a 50-32 victory.
“It’s actually a really good feeling,” Hohl said. “But when my teammate came over and picked me up that was a really good feeling, she picked me up and threw me over her shoulder. I have to thank her for the pass to get me there, and the rest of my teammates who helped me get there over the years. It’s just an incredible feeling, I was almost to tears on the floor, pointing to my parents, it’s just really incredible.”
The Lady Indians, in spite of the scoreboard, had quite a few positives. This was the first game all season where the entire Harpeth squad was healthy and ready to play.
“This is the first game we’ve had everybody,” Harpeth Coach Jimmy Mitchell stated. “So that’s always good, and it kind of prepares us for what’s next. It’s really nice to finally have everyone. You can practice a little more and see everybody in the spots they’re used to. We’ve seen what the younger kids can do, we just have to tweak it and find the best way to line everyone up.”
The Lady Red Hawks held an 11-6 lead at the end of the first quarter, and then pushed it to 19-13 at half. But the second half of action is where Creek Wood stepped up the defense and held Harpeth to only 5 points in the third quarter. Creek Wood head Coach Russell Wilson attributed his team’s shot making and energy for the success.
“I’m glad we shot a little bit better than we have the last few games,” Wilson stated. “So maybe we’re finding a rhythm and groove for our shots which is big for us to be successful. I think we’ve been off for about two weeks so they were excited to get out on the floor, so they had a lot of energy and they wanted to win to finish our last game in Cheatham County, this finishes our Cheatham County tour.”
Creek Wood’s next game will be next Monday, December 3 where they will travel to East Nashville, and Harpeth will take a short road trip to Sycamore for their next game on Tuesday, December 4.
