The Hickman girls basketball team won the championship of the Rolla tournament Saturday with a 54-47 victory over Sullivan.

Jade Holly, who led the Kewpies (10-3) with 19 points, and Aqua Corpening, who scored 17 and contributed a successful defensive effort against the taller Eagles, were named to the all-tournament team with Corpening earning MVP honors.

After the game was tied at 24 at halftime, Claire Ortbals gave Hickman some cushion with a pair of second-half 3-pointers. Abbie Kent also provided tough defense coming in off the bench for the Kewpies.
