Chloie Kendall drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer Thursday to lift the Riverton High School varsity girls basketball team to a 30-28 win over Tri-City/Sangamon Valley in the seventh place game of the Lady Hawk Christmas Classic.
The game-winning shot was assisted by Madeline Giberson, who found Kendall open on the wing.
The Hawks led by as many as seven points in the third period (22-15 and 24-17), both times after Brandy Petitt stole the ball. The first time, she was fouled and split two free throws, with Tori Scales then scoring on a putback.
