The Grace Christian Academy Lady Cougars (0-3) fell to the Brookwood High School Lady Warriors (6-0) 52-13.

Junior forward Sara Kate Crews led the team in rebounding— an area that Grace Christian Academy Head Coach Kelsey Harrell said was an improvement from the last game.

“One thing that was very, very good was Sara Kate’s rebounding,” Harrell said. “I told [Crews] in the locker room, ‘I couldn’t have asked you to rebound better or change anything in your rebounding tonight.’”
