A strong defensive effort powered the Marion County Lady Knights to a 56-23 win Saturday night over the Washington County Commanderettes. Haley Howard led all scorers with 26.
"I was real happy with it," Mills said. "We knew Washington County had been struggling but they're young. Lena [Bramblett] will have her team ready in the next couple of years to be contenders."
Eight Lady Knights scored in the game. Leah Hazelwood and Tete Adams each added six rebounds.
