Senior Miranda Hungate had a team-high 14 points. Senior Summer Mullins added 7 points and dominated the glass with a game-high 14 rebounds.

Freshman Hannah Stewart also had 9 points.

Lauren Wright had a game-high 21 points for Piarist, and Kylie Tackett scored the other 11 points.

Head Coach Chad Terrell praised his team’s effort after the game.

“I’m proud of all of them. They really competed tonight,” he said. “Ellie (Jenkins) is a just a big ball of energy, so having her offensively and defensively, you know she’s not going to back down.”

Scoring for the Lady Bulldogs: Hungate 14, Jenkins 9, Stewart 9, Mullins 7, Holton 6, Cocanaugher 2.

Scoring for the Lady Knights: Wright 21, Tackett 11.
