HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: Lady Raiders dominate paint in blowout of previously unbeaten Walker Valley

Walker Valley came to Manchester with a perfect 6-0 record Tuesday night. Coffee County pounded the Mustangs inside, scoring early and often in a 73-27 blowout – a game you heard live on Thunder Radio.

Junior post Chloe Gannon piled up 20 points and it could have easily been more. Senior forward Elli Chumley added 15 – the two were named Stone Fort Mortgage co-Players of the Game.

Alivia Reel picked up 3 points, and Emma Fulks 2. Junior guard Jalie Ruehling scored her first 2 points of the season after playing her first significant minutes in her return from July ACL surgery. Remi Benjamin pitched in 2 points in the paint.
