The Pulaski County girls basketball program continued to roll with a lopsided 70-21 victory on the road at Christiansburg Friday evening. The Cougars are now 11-5 on the season and a perfect 7-0 in River Ridge District play. The Blue Demons dropped to 2-11 on the season and 0-7 in the district.
“It was a good win,” said Cougar head coach Brad Suthphin. “We started out a bit sloppy early in the game, but got things smoothed out, and at stretches really played the way these girls are capable of playing. I was pleased with the effort. It’s always a good feeling for the entire team when you have a big win and every player gets to play, and tonight, they not only all played, every player scored. That’s great,” said the pleased Sutphin.
Pulaski County took control early and led 23-9 at the end of the first quarter and was never threatened. And there were a dozen Cougar players in uniform at Christainsburg and all 12 of them put lights on the scoreboard.
Alaina Akers and Keslyn Secrist both scored 11 points. Erin Russell and Paige Huff both finished with eight, Ally Fleenor and Maddie Ratcliff both scored seven, Kassidy Secrist. Courtney Cregger, and Bailey Nash all got four, Taryn Blankenship, Aubrey O’Dell, and Jaden Lawson all finished with two. Habban Altizer led Christiansburg with 10.
