Published: Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

HINCKLEY – Moose heart’s participation in this week’s IHSA Class 1A Hinckley-Big Rock Girls Basketball Regional showed how far the Ramblers have progressed – and how far the program has to go.

One night after Moose heart gained its first postseason victory since 2008, top-seeded host Hinckley-Big Rock scored the first 12 points, was never seriously troubled, and emerged Tuesday with a 52-13 victory. The defeat ended a season in which Mooseheart finished 3-18, three more victories than the team managed a year ago.

By the end of the first quarter, Hinckley-Big Rock led, 19-5, and already had enough points to win the game. Kammie Kolb hit the Ramblers’ basket in the first quarter while Hannah Tucker hit two free throws and Aishah Adebayo added a free throw of her own.
