Faith Van Ruden led SMHS with 11 points, three rebounds, one assist and three steals. Rounding out the scoring were Tiffany Cokkinias (two points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals), Jordan Thompson (three points, two rebounds, one assist), Emily Bryant (three points, one rebound), Jacki Livesay (nine points, one rebound, one steal); Kirsten Potter (four points, four rebounds), Kerigan Smith, Abby Griffin (two points, one assist, one steal), Bailey Rutledge, Courtney White (two points, four rebounds, one assist), Sidney Early (three rebounds), Mikayla Kington (four points, five rebounds), Riley Hunt and Lacey Melton.

The Lady Panthers were 14 of 53 from the field (26.4 percent), including eight of 27 from three-point range (29.6 percent) and four of four from the charity stripe with 32 turnovers, 27 rebounds, eight assists and 27 steals.

The Lady Warriors outscored SMHS 21-16 after one quarter and extended the lead to 45-24 at the half. After both teams scored 10 points in the third quarter, CAK finished the game with a 19-6 run for the final margin of victory.

The Lady Panthers are tied with Kingston for third place in the district at 1-1, behind CAK (2-0) and Alcoa (2-0). Loudon and Scott County are both 0-2.
