The women’s basketball team continued their winning streak on the road against Sacramento City College, winning Friday’s game 87-49.

The Hawks won their sixth conference game this season and look to continue building their team’s flow.

“We don’t let each other do individual things,” said guard Amirah Rode-McKissack. “We stay together as a team and we work together as a team.”

The Hawks ended the first half, leading 42-20, allowing eight points in the first quarter.

A total of 43 rebounds and 13 assists were made to push the offense throughout the game.

“We always talk to each other before our games and make sure everyone has the same energy,” said guard Ter’Majaunique Ford-Small.

The Hawks have an average of 42.4 rebounds and 16.2 assists per game, according to CRC Athletics. Head Coach Samuel Kirby said the team is working on playing with more energy and communicating.

“When it comes to each game we have to focus on us and improving each detail,” Kirby said. “It’s a tough task but all the great teams do it.”

Ford-Small said the team is working on their defense, transitions and communication heading into the next game.

“I’m really proud of this team, I feel like we can go far as long as we all keep sharing the ball,” Ford-Small said.

Guard LaKayla Hale led the team with four steals. She added three assists as well as five rebounds.

The Hawks ended the second half adding on 45 points. Forward Mikaela Whalen, leading scorer of the game, scored a total of 19 points.

With their eleventh consecutive win, Kirby said it is hard to stay in a winning mindset because you can easily get complacent.

The Hawks improved to a 17-1 record after Friday’s win. They play four away games in a row and are looking to continue their streak on Tuesday at Diablo Valley College against the Vikings.

“Everybody is doubting us so we’re really trying to make history and make people respect us,” said forward Saray White. “Go Hawks!”
