During the varsity game, Russellville senior Amber Duncan scored her 1,000th career point.

"The varsity game was a struggle," Russellville Coach David Volkart said. "We didn’t shoot very well and South Callaway was very prepared. Nothing seemed to work for us and we never established any kind of rhythm. I’m glad the girls found a way to win."

"The JV girls came out and played really well," Volkart said. "Defensively, we set the tone and never looked back."
