“The girls came into the game ready to play,” said Lady Dukes Coach Holly Andreski. “All players contributed, and it was a total team effort. I am very proud of the girls for playing with teamwork and intensity the entire game.”

The Lady Dukes made a combined 55 rebounds and were 13-for-24 from the free-throw line.

Windsor was led in scoring by Whitney Searcy with 19 points, including going 5-for-6 from the free-throw line.

“Windsor came out scoring first,” Andreski said. “We took the lead the second quarter and maintained the lead the entire game. Courtney McCaskey’s and Tommie Curtis’ tight defense helped to contain Charles City from scoring.”
