The Lady Tigers swept the season series with the Lady Hawks, also owning an 86-25 victory at home earlier in the season over their Corridor G rivals.

With the win, Chapmanville also improved to 6-2 against Class AA sectional foes.

The Lady Tigers, which split with county rival Logan this season, are fighting it out for the top seed for the upcoming sectional tournament. Section coaches will be voting on the seedings soon.

"We got off to a really fast start and led 15-0," CRHS coach Johnny Williamson said. "We had four players in double figures by halftime. We didn't play great in the second half. We will start preparing for Mingo."
