Hillsboro girls and boys earn wins against Nickerson (Dec. 15)

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN DR
For the first time this season, the Hillsboro girls and boys won ballgames on the same night, taking a pair of games from Nickerson on Friday, Dec. 15, at Brown Gymnasium.



The girls slowly pulled away from the Panthers over the first three quarters, leading 15-10 after one, 23-18 at halftime and then 36-24 after three quarters.



JuliAnne Chisholm scored 22 points for the Trojans, who improved to 4-1 for the season.



The Hillsboro boys played a solid first half to build a 27-14 halftime margin, then endured through some ragged play in the second half to claim a 50-44 victory. The Panthers pulled to within 47-42 on a 3-pointer with 1:26 to go, but Hillsboro held the Panthers scoreless until they managed a meaningless bucket at the buzzer.



Lucas Hamm scored a game-high 19 points for Hillsboro, which improves to 2-3 with the win.
