The Grace Christian Academy Lady Cougars improved their overall record to 15-4 and evened their ISA Region AA-3 record at 3-3 with a 39-37 victory Tuesday over the Southwest Georgia Academy Lady Warriors on senior night at Perry Memorial Gymnasium.

“Probably the most important stat tonight was turnovers,” Coach Erwin Harrell said after the game. “We had over 20 turnovers the past three games but tonight we only had seven. Now if we can just get those fouls under control.”

Senior Lady Cougars honored Tuesday were Kelsey Harrell, Perra Harrell and Lindsey Duke. Also honored on senior night were varsity cheerleaders Hannah Holden and Annabelle Smith and varsity dancers Haley Chandler, Ansley Stuart and Carley Cranford.
