Hixson to go from Husky to Coyote


In just a little over a year and a half Aurora’s Kiley Hixson will transform herself from a Husky into a Coyote.
Similar-type animals maybe, yet far different.
That’s what happens when you take that next step up.
Kiley, after she graduates in 2016, will take her many volleyball talents north to South Dakota University in Vermillion, home of the Coyotes.
The all-stater announced her decision just this past week after weighing different options. With the choice now made, she said she can just concentrate on school and on simply improving her skills on the volleyball court.
Why South Dakota? She said it was because she simply had a good recruiting visit, fell in love with the campus, the coaches, the players and with the facilities.

No. 5-rated Giltner girls make CRC final

The Giltner Lady Hornets started on an 8-0 run to start their Crossroads Conference Tournament semifinal match against Meridian and never looked back, cruising to a 59-41 win Thursday night at the York City Auditorium. Senior Baily Craig scored six of those opening eight point, and was part of the reason Giltner dominated the paint and boards in the game. Craig finished the game with 16 points while fellow senior forward Kelbie Lyon added 15. Those two posts had their way all night in the second win of the season over the Mustangs. The Lady Hornets pushed their lead to 18-8 after Lyon finished a and-one at the end of the first quarter. Giltner held a 30-20 lead at halftime, then went on a 8-2 run to start the third quarter thanks to two baskets in the paint by junior forward Chainey Tompkin and also classmate Taylor Rhoades and Craig. Tompkin finished the third quarter by scoring four points in a row to give her team a 49-34 lead.
