The South Winn girls dropped their only contest of the week as they fell to West Central, 47-23.

“We did not execute and lacked hustle in almost all four quarters,” said Kayla Ross, head coach, after the contest. “None of our shots were falling and our defense was not as strong as it usually is. I am disappointed in our lack of effort and hope the girls learn from this loss.”

The Blue Devils grabbed the lead early and kept the pressure on throughout as the Warriors committed 14 turnovers and were out-rebounded, 41-32.
