NEW BOSTON — The turtle became the hare.

Kalli Hunt erupted for his best all-around game with 21 points and 19 rebounds as the Symmes Valley Lady Vikings routed the New Boston Lady Tigers 52-35 Monday in a Southern Ohio Conference game.

“Kalli Hunt came out of her shell. She played like she was possessed,” said Lady Vikings’ coach Brandon Walker.

Kaitlyn Payne added 13 points for the Lady Vikings who improved to 3-2 overall and in the league.

Kiersten McGraw scored 17 for New Boston.

Hunt had 7 points in the first quarter as the Lady Vikings took a 14-3 lead. She had 4 more points in the second quarter but New Boston rallied to get within 22-14 at the half.

Hunt and Payne combined for 10 points in the third quarter as the Lady Vikings extended their lead to 35-23.

Payne had 6 points, Hunt 4 and Gracie Waddell scored all 5 of her points as Symmes Valley put the game away.

“It was a game of runs. We would go on a 12-0 run and then get comfortable and stand around,” said Walker.

“It’s a nice win, but we still have things to work on.”

Symmes Valley hosts Western Thursday in a league game.
