“We really had a team effort,” said Bulldogs head coach Todd Reynolds. “We had some players step up. We knew they were going to key on Keeyah and Precious. They weren’t prepared for a seventh-grader to come out there and score points.”

Rouse scored eight of her team’s 11 points in the second quarter with six of them coming from behind the arc.

“Any good team usually has a triple threat,” Reynolds said. “We haven’t had that very often this year. She had 16 points, that’s a seventh grader. That is the future right there. We got a glimpse of it.”

Vaznaian finished with 12 points on the night, while Rodgers put in five.

With two area games left on the schedule, the Bulldogs hope to still claim third place. To do that Reynolds believes

The Bulldogs will travel to take on Daleville beginning at 6 p.m. this evening.
