The Pulaski County girls basketball team moved to 9-4 on the season and an undefeated 5-0 in the River Ridge District with a convincing 64-48 victory on the road at Cave Spring.
The team got off to a good start when Alaina Akers connected on two big 3-point shots in the first quarter. The Cougars would hit seven threes for the game and Akers and Paige Huff would both connect three times from long range. Cave dropped to 8-5 on the season.
It was a consistent and balanced effort by Pulaski County. Akers led the way with a season high 13 points and Huff finished with 10. Ally Fleenor and Keslyn Secrist both scored nine. The Cougar girls also won the JV game, 48-11.
“It was a good team effort,” said coach Brad Sutphin. “We got 22 points off the bench, and we got to rotate a lot of players. It keeps us fresh, and when it’s your time step up and when it’s somebody else’s time, they need to step up. We did tonight. It’s nice when a lot of the kids contribute,” said Sutphin.
