Hensley Eaton had the spotlight prior to Lomega’s 65-25 dismantling of Burlington last Friday night, but it was a sophomore who stole the show on the court.
Eaton and fellow senior JesseJames Johnston were crowned homecoming queen and king on a night that saw the school also recognize state championship teams from 1991 (girls) and 2001 (boys).
During the girls game, Abby Swart scored more points in three quarters than the Lady Elks did in four.
The guard made six 3-pointers and scored a game-high 28 points as Lomega won for the second straight time and improved to 4-1.
She made four of those treys and scored 14 points in the first as the Lady Raiders jumped out to a 19-5 lead.
The advantage grew to 34-8 by halftime as Allie Roberts, Eaton and Chloe Meier added to Lomega’s 3-point total.
The team made 13 of them.
Eaton contributed three and scored 11 points.
Meier made two to score all six of her points.
Sydni Walker also scored six for the Lady Raiders.
