Hawken athletics teach not only the skills for your sport but skills for the world.
Makayla White has earned the reputation of a fierce competitor during her first season on Varsity Girls Basketball team. In her last game, a dominant win over Beachwood, in just 15 minutes, Makayla had 15 pts, 12 rebounds and 1 steal. Coach David Murray tell us, "Makayla is the type of player whose contributions transcend the box score. She is a consummate competitor who is able to affect the game on both ends of the court. Makayla is an outstanding teammate and leader, and we are blessed to have her in our program." Look for Makayla and the rest of the Hawken Girls Basketball team to put on another show this Saturday at 6:30pm - Home vs Harvey for senior night.
