Serena downs Hiawatha: No. 2 Serena got out to an early lead over No. 7 Hiawatha in the quarterfinals of the girls basketball LTC tournament and never looked back in a 45-21 win over the Hawks.

The Hawks will play No. 6 Paw Paw in the consolation bracket at 7 p.m. Thursday at Indian Creek.


G-K loses in triangular: Genoa-Kingston lost to Rockford Jefferson (41-36) and Mooseheart (39-36).

“We’re still suffering from numbers, giving up four or five weight classes. It’s tough,” G-K coach Earl Jursich said. “It’s tough to be a sophomore and wrestling kids who are juniors and seniors.”

Joe Murray recorded two early pins in each of his matches at 145 pounds. Nick Cotham had a pin against Mooseheart.
