HELIX - Nixyaawi's girls basketball team continued its strong start into the new year with a dominant victory over Helix, 56-20, here Thursday night.

The win continued, the once defeated Golden Eagles stellar start to the season, while Helix fell to 4-7.

"They shot the ball extemely well," said Helix head coach Dean Fouquette. "There's not a whole lot that we can do to stop a team when they are hitting from the outside like that."

The Golden Eagles were led by 14 points from both McKayla McKay and Jesse Simpson, while Helix had the high scoring evening from Chyanne Hack, who finished with 16 points.

"The way Chyanne played was definitely a big highlight for us," Fouquette said. "She made all seven of our field goals so that's pretty impressive."

Helix is next slated to head to Condon on Friday, while Nixyaawii will take on Ione on the same night.
