Girls Basketball: Eagles improve to 3-2 with win over Bears


NEW YORK MILLS -- Despite 37 points from Bertha-Hewitt's senior guard Arei Stokes, the New York Mills girls basketball team improved to 3-2 this season with a 74-64 win over the Bears.

"This was a fun and exciting game for our girls," Head Coach JJ Weller said. "We played a team, who recently has been struggling, but is a very good squad."

Bertha-Hewitt came into the game 0-5.

Stokes, who has seen varsity time since junior high, did what she wanted on the court.
