The Lady Cougars beat Greensburg 64-49 in a game that South had led by 21 points. South led 32-17 at the half before Greensburg scored 24 points in the fourth quarter.
South head coach Jessi McConnell said senior Ashley Johannigman broke the school’s career assists record Friday night. Johannigman also scored 17 points, unofficially, and included her teammates in a balanced offensive performance.
The Greensburg junior varsity team defeated South 36-23 in the first game.
