Tonawanda News — As the second quarter unfolded the Hawks realized they had to focus and not give Nardin the chance to climb back into the game.
That's when Walton took over.
Walton, who came to O'Hara after spending three years at Holy Angels, was 9 of 11 from the free throw line, hit a 3-pointer, five field goals and put the spark in the Hawks' offense that the Gators could not keep pace with.
“I think she's the missing piece,” Keyonte Edwards said of Walton. “She's so humble. She's never been to New York. This is going to be my fourth time to New York. She wanted this and I'm so happy we got to accomplish this our senior year.”
Edwards had 11 points, nine rebounds, and four steals. All-Catholic post game awards saw Walton and Edwards named Co-MVP's of the league.
“You expect big things from big players in big games,” said McDermott. “And that's exactly what they did.”
Senior Kelsey McCarthy (All-Catholic first team) had 12 rebounds, while freshman Cori Dickson added 14 points.Follow @tonanewssports on Twitter for complete high school sports coverage.
