Jessie Stidham put seven on the board, along with Emily Brigman’s three, and Calee Thigpen added two for the Eagles.


The Richard Winn boys sought a road win, as well. They came up on the losing end of a 52-47 score.


Although the Eagles fell short, guard Cameron Cooper’s three-point game really helped the team. Cooper led the team in scoring with 19 points, having only missed two free throws.


Other RWA players that impacted the game were Patrick Pope, who scored14 points, and Gunnar Hensley and Mason Gibbons who each had four. Jason Branham, Mitchell Gibbons, and Blake Pauley each scored two points for RWA.


All four Eagle teams host Spartanburg Christian Academy on De. 10 with junior varsity play beginning at 4 p.m. and varsity play following at 6 p.m.
