 On Tuesday night the Lady Eagles beat Camden 44-40, making them 3-1 in conference play. 

CeCe Gillum and Anaya Jones led the offense with 14 points each. Jada Cooks scored seven.

Coach Shanae Govan said that the Lady Eagles really played as a team and she was proud of the team effort.

On Wednesday, they played the Star City Bulldogs, last year’s defending state champions. The Lady Eagles fell 54-26 putting them 3-2 in conference play. 

On Friday night, however, they redeemed themselves with a big win. The Lady Eagles beat the Lady Lions in the Hamburg-Crossett rivalry game.

The Lady Eagles started and finished in the lead with the Lady Lions only briefly closing the gap near the end of the game. 

The Lady Eagles finished 43-36. 

Cece Gillum led the offense with 17 points. Anaya Jones was close behind her with 16 total points and Jada Cooks scored nine.

The Lady Eagles are now 4-2 in conference play and played again at home on Tuesday night, but results were not available at press time.  The Lady Eagles will travel to Pine Bluff on Friday to face Watson Chapel.
