The Happy Valley Lady Warriors kept the ball rolling in the early season as Coach Thomas Gouge’s team overran the Sullivan North Lady Raiders 56-19.

Behind two treys and seven points from Casey Campbell as the Lady Warriors built their advantage to 30-11 at the break.

Absher came alive as well scoring seven points in the run.

Neither team could find life in the third quarter as Happy Valley barely outscored North 6-3.

Whitson nailed 3-of-4 from the charity stripe and Lunceford added two points. Kenzie Ramey collected the other point from the free-throw line.

The Lady Warriors salted the game away in style in the final eight minutes of action outscoring North 20-5 to seal the win.

Nine of the 14 Lady Warriors that took the floor scored making it a total team win overall.

Kadie Bailey caught fire in the fourth quarter hitting 12 of her game-high 13 points in the final stanza.

Absher finished with eight points while Campbell and Henegar finished with seven points each.

A trio of Lady Warriors scored five points as Ramey, Lunceford, and Whitson contributed to the victory.
