Macy Williams had a standout game for the Chargers with 26 points and three assists. Williams made all four of her free throws, went 9-for-16 (56 percent) from the floor and shot 4-fo- 5 (80 percent) from 3-point range.

Hamilton coach Bill Scasny believes his team's shooting has improved since the beginning of the season.

"It's gotten a little more consistent, a little bit better," Scasny said. "Macy's been playing really well. They kind of feed off her. Hopefully some of the ones will start getting hotter."

Taylor Laboy contributed 9 points and made one 3-pointer; Jordan Fierst scored 8 points and grabbed eight rebounds; and Taylor Fuerstenberg had 7 points and and four steals.

"Taylor Fuerstenberg gave us a good lift both halves off the bench," Scasny said. "Especially at the end of the game. She hit five of six free throws down the stretch. She just gave us a great lift. She played minutes, and the minutes she played were quality minutes."

Kristin Thompson compiled seven rebounds, and Eliana Selin had five. Both Ellie Sumiec and Thompson had two steals.

JV cruises

The HHS junior varsity team beat Wauwatosa East on Dec. 13, 55-31. Hamilton led at the half, 28-14.

Ana Rhude and Elizabeth Behrndt had 14 and 11 points, respectively.

"These girls did a very good job getting the ball to people that were in a position to score," coach Ben Filzen said. "This has been the most fun thing to watch this season, the assists. Taylor Hibicke is doing a great job setting the example in that department. Last season we relied on her to score because we didn’t have that many threats. This season, she hasn’t had to score that much because we have a lot of weapons. It really speaks volumes about her ability as a player. She’s able to switch like that and still be a leader for us. It takes a lot of talent and discipline to do that."
