Linden Hall advanced in the State Tournament for the second year in a row, with a 56-34 victory Saturday afternoon at Warwick High School over the Southern Fulton Indians from Fulton County.
Seven Lions scored: Tahri (19); Hetta (10); Anya (10); Jumoke (8); Marta (6); Naomi (2); and Favour (1).
"We always play a lot of players and last night was no exception," said Coach Robert Kauffman.
The Lions committed just three turnovers all night en route to their victory. They put the finishing touch on their opponent by forcing five turnovers and two missed shots to begin the second half of play. Anya Miller made her first start for the Lions after breaking her ankle five months ago.
The next round will be Wednesday, March 14, at a venue to be announced.
