Three different Lady Raiders reached double figures and Coffee County played lock-down team defense to beat Worthington, Ohio 60-29 Wednesday afternoon in the semi-finals of the Carolina Invitational in Charleston, S.C.

Senior Elli Chumley had an 11-point first half to set the tone for the Lady Raiders, who led 35-14 at the halftime break. Chumley finished with a game-high 13 points.

Joining Chumley in double-figures were senior Kiya Ferrell and junior Jalie Ruehling with 10 apiece – all coming from the field.

Also scoring for the Lady Raiders were Chloe Gannon with 8, Channah Gannon 6, Olivia Vinson 5, Alivia Reel 4, Ava McIntosh 3 and Remi Benjamin 1.

The win marks 9 in a row for the Lady Raiders, who improve to 12-3 overall.
