A 33-point victory over district rival Karns High School helped the Campbell County girls forget —at least momentarily — about last week’s league disaster.

The Lady Cougars lost games to Knoxville teams Halls (Wed.) and West (Fri.) before rebounding with a 69-36 rout of the Lady Beavers on Tuesday night.

Campbell County (7-8 district, 12-12 overall) has a chance to move up the tournament seeding ladder, provided it takes care of business tonight (Thurs.) at Knoxville Central in the district regular season finale.

Junior guard Jessica Moore set the pace against Karns with 16 points, including a 6-of-6 foray at the free throw line. Candice Seiber chipped in 13 points, followed by Megan Chapman with 10, Courtney Morris and Shayla Goins seven each, Kristin Chapman six, Lindsay Evans and Maria Foust four each, and Courtney Miller two.

The Lady Cougars led 32-11 at halftime.

Last Friday, Campbell County let a 19-point lead slip away in the second half during a 65-55 loss to West on senior night.

DaShira Buley led four West scorers in double figures with 19 points, including 12 in the quarter to help rally the Lady Rebels.

The Lady Cougars won a non-district game, 73-57, Thursday night at Scott County. Morris had a breakout game with 19 points, including five treys. Seiber also scored 19 points, followed by Moore with 10; Evans eight; Foust seven; Goins four; and Kristin Chapman, Miller and Megan Chapman two each.
