Rangers Are Champs!

The NHS girls' basketball team earned the title of 2007 Tri-Valley League Co-Champions tonight with a 45-31 win over Bishop Diego. The Lady Rangers will share the title with Oaks Christian because both teams were 10-2 in league play.

The Rangers were slow out of the gate tonight, but rallied behind junior Allie Clifford and her 23 points. Clifford also added 10 rebounds. Senior Megan Swann had 10 assists and nine steals in her final regular season home game. Swann eclipsed the 1,000 career point mark late in the third quarter tonight as well. Nicole Bergmann added 14 points.

The drawing for the CIF playoffs will take place this weekend. Nordhoff's opponent will be reported late Sunday afternoon.
