Lady Warriors remain perfect

PRYOR — The Adair Lady Warriors ran through Sallisaw Monday 74-57 to advance to the semifinals of the Pryor Invitational Tournament.

The Black Diamonds started quick, jumping out to a 7-3 lead in the first minutes. Adair, a team that has rarely trailed this season, responded in dominating fashion.

Led by senior Raven Campos, who found her range early with two three-pointers, the Lady Warriors led by 12 after one period.

“I’ve been putting in extra work shooting on Sunday’s,” Campos said. “I’m glad that it’s paying off.”

The second quarter didn’t come any easier for Sallisaw, as Adair turned up the defensive intensity.

Junior forward Bailey Stephens was a one-woman wrecking crew with consecutive steals converted into points before forcing a subsequent backcourt violation on the Black Diamonds.

Junior forward Molly Kerr opened the quarter with a trey, and Campos and Kerr closed the curtain with back-to-back three’s as the quarter ended.

Adair nearly doubled Sallisaw’s score before the break.

Four Lady Warriors scored in double figures.

Campos and Kerr had 16 apiece. Stephens dropped 14, while versatile sophomore forward Kylie Looney chipped in 13.

Senior post Anna Crawford was reliable in the paint with nine points.

“Our post girls are really coming around for us in games,” said Campos. “It’s a good time for them to step up like they are, especially as playoffs approach.

Adair faces Locust Grove in the semifinals for the second time in a tournament Thursday at 8:45.

The Lady Warriors won the last encounter before defeating Ketchum to win the Locust Grove Tournament.

Scoring: Campos 16, Kerr 16, Stephens 14, Looney 13, Crawford 9, Fleming 3, Rogers 3
