FAIRLAND 51, NELSONVILLE-YORK 42: Tomi Hinkle scored 19 points and held Buckeyes star Mackenzie Hurd to 13 as the Dragons (11-2) won at the Carl York Center on Saturday.

Hinkle came out strong, scoring 11 points in the first quarter, during which Fairland raced to a 12-0 lead. Nelsonville-York (8-5) tried to come back behind Hurd, a Youngstown State signee, but never moved closer than within four points.

“I thought we played really well,” Fairland coach Jon Buchanan said. “They have a (NCAA) Division I point guard and (Airah) Lavy is one of the better sophomores in Southeastern Ohio. I was really happy with how we played.”

Bree Allen scored 13 points for Fairland. Olivia Speelman chipped in 10 points for the Buckeyes.

“Tomi made a lot of shots early,” Buchanan said. “She played a great game. She guarded Hurd, probably the hardest defensive assignment I’ve ever given her.”
