Grosse Pointe North’s girls’ basketball team split its Macomb Area Conference Red Division games last week.

The Norsemen opened with a 53-24 win over Sterling Heights Stevenson, as they built a 27-13 halftime lead and cruised in the second half.

Senior Taryn Kiah had 18 points, four rebounds and three steals to lead the team, while junior Maria Liddane had 12 points, eight assists, six rebounds and three steals.

Sophomore Megan Lesha chipped in with eight points, while seniors Stavi Varlamos and Francesca Ciaramitaro each had five points.

Junior Jayla Hubbard and freshman Erin Armbruster had six rebounds apiece.

Last weekend, the Norsemen shot 21 percent from the field in a 41-28 loss to Utica Ford.

“Ford played a very good game,” head coach Gary Bennett said. “We played hard, but couldn’t score.”

Liddane had 10 points, six rebounds and three steals, while Kiah had nine points and Ciaramitaro six points.

Grosse Pointe North is 4-4 in the MAC Red Division and 7-8 overall.
