Girls Varsity Basketball · Ladies Make It 8 Straight With Win at Irmo

Olivia Thompson scored 28, upping her career points total to 1590.  She is averaging 23 points per game this season.  Claire Tarlton and Hannah Kumiyama were effective in rebounding on both ends and contributed 7 and 6 points respectively.
