Stanley, Randle lead Heights by Kapaun
WICHITA, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - Behind 24 from Cayanna Stanley and Laniah Randle’s 22, Heights was too much for Kapaun Mt. Carmel in Saturday’s season opener, defeating the Crusaders 68-49.
It was one big quarter, the second, that saw the Falcons outscore KMC 23-5, that proved to be the difference maker in sending Heights to a 1-0 start despite playing without star junior Zyanna Walker.
Walker, who carries offers from more than 20 Division 1 programs, is still recovering from a torn ACL and meniscus suffered in late February.
Instead it was the two other D1 players, Stanley and Randle, provided more than enough for the Falcons to cruise without her. Stanley is taking on a new role running the point following the graduation as a junior on the rise. The Falcons also added West transfer Cherish Gails over the offseason, she put up 12 for the Falcons.
KMC, also with three players finishing in double-figures, kept the game close in the early going before WSU signee Ella Anciaux picked up a second first quarter foul. With her on the bench, the Falcons started to put the game away early. Anciaux finished with 12, paced by sophomore Sophia Gimino who lead the Crusaders with 14.
Heights will return to action Tuesday night to take on Northwest before a highly anticipated matchup with Andover Central Friday as part of the AVCTL/GWAL challenge. KMC will meet North Tuesday before their Challenge contest against Maize South.
