WILLIAMS -- While the outcome was in doubt after a slow first half, the Hidden Valley girls basketball team stormed back to rout Klamath Union 54-24 Thursday night to earn at least a share of the 4A Skyline Conference regular season title. 

With their next win or Henley's next loss, they will clinch the outright title. The Hornets need to win their final three games (including one against Hidden Valley) and the Mustangs must lose their final two games for the two teams to tie in the conference standings. Mazama could tie, but does not hold the tiebreaker over either team. 

When they needed her to, Kaylee Krusemark got hot from deep again for the Mustangs, who entered the night ranked as the second-best 4A girls basketball team in the state. Klamath Union pushed back for a while, but Hidden Valley was eventually able to get into their transition game, which put the game on ice.

The guard speed of Janelle Hurley and Clara Scott have proven to be too much for most teams this season and that was the case again Thursday night. The Mustangs' final two regular-season games are against Henley on Tuesday and North Valley a week from Friday.
