Falcon girls hoops survive Turks

Free throws helped South Whidbey girls basketball defeat Sultan on Wednesday night.

More importantly, the Falcons won their third game in a row and put more distance from their three-game losing streak in December.

Behind a game-high 15 points from senior Hayley Newman, the Falcons won 38-31. Newman hit only two of four free throws, but drained her lone three-point field goal and made five baskets. Fellow Falcon senior Ellie Greene chipped in 8 points to go along with 10 rebounds.
