The eighth-ranked girls rolled up an 84-23 win.

In the boys game, Hunter Neighbors scored 10 points and Theron Gilmer contributed nine as the Warriors marched out to a 33-11 halftime advantage.

From there, the outcome was academic.

Neighbors, a sophomore, finished with 16 points. Senior Logan Crawford scored 12 and Gilmer finished with 11.
