The Nettes started the game on a roll, outscoring the Lady Cougars 10-2 thanks in part to two three-pointers from sophomore Sarah Smith.

Sarah Smith led the Dragonnettes in scoring and rebounds with fifteen and eleven, respectively.
Following the girl’s game was the boy’s game, pitting a hungry Pickens team against a vulnerable Copper Basin squad. Senior Spencer Jones brought his A-game for this one, putting up twenty-three points with nine rebounds and six assists as the Dragons beat down the Cougars 69-40.
