After a weekend sweep at Black Forest Academy, the Hanau girls find themselves in the same position they occupied going into the 2003 holiday break: atop the Division II standings.

Returning All-Europe senior Katisha Fauntleroy led the Lady Panthers in Friday’s 51-22 win and in Saturday’s 25-12 victory.

Fauntleroy, backed by 15 points from Alexis Padgett and 12 from Kyri Bye-Nagel, scored 15 points on Friday and eight Saturday, along with eight steals, against BFA’s slowdown game.

The sweep puts Hanau, which lost by one to Kaiserslautern of Division I the previous Saturday, atop Division II with a 2-0 league mark. The Lady Panthers resume the division season on Jan. 15 at AFNORTH.

BFA fell to 0-2 in league play and 2-2 overall. The Falcons will resume their season Jan. 14 at Patch.
