EAGLE POINT — Senior post Carlene Hart scored a game-high 21 points to lead the way as the Eagle Point girls basketball team recorded a 58-43 win over Ashland on Wednesday night at Eagle Point High School.

Eagle Point, which led 24-23 at halftime, outscored Ashland 34-20 in the second half to pull away for the win.

“We left Hart open underneath the hoop and she’s great around the basket,” Ashland head coach Antione Perry said. “Other than that, I thought we played pretty well.”

Hart was one of two Eagles players to score in double figures in the win, as fellow senior post Ashli Meerten finished with 16 points.

Ashland also had two players score in double figures in the game. Freshman wing Jayd Sollinger scored a team-high 16 points, while sophomore guard Nina Munson added 10. Malia Rodriguez also had eight in the loss.

Ashland’s Nina Munson finished with a game-high four steals, four assists and nine rebounds against Eagle Point. Mya Elder Hammond also had four assists and pulled down five rebounds.
