Kate Chamblee hauled down 11 rebounds to lead the Lady Rams on the boards. Molly Brown added 10 rebounds.

The Lady Rams also picked up another win last week in Courtland, VA where Ridgecroft used an 11-0 run in the first quarter to set the tone for a 42-23 victory at Southampton Academy.

  1. Slaughter and H. Slaughter led the way offensively with 16 and 10 points respectively. Chamblee added eight points while collecting a game-high nine rebounds.
