The Bandys girls basketball team continued its early season roll, knocking off Bunker Hill in Catawba on Wednesday.
The Lady Trojans (13-0, 4-0) quickly jumped out to a 28-2 lead in the first quarter and never looked back, continuing their undefeated streak so far this season.
Three Bandys basketball players reached double-digits in scoring, including sophomore Madi Story, who led the team with 19 points.
Taylor Sigmon and Brittany Moss also scored 11 points each.
Margaret Connor scored 11 points, while Wilbelis Rojas added nine points for the Lady Bears (0-13, 0-4).
NEW YORK â€” Boris Diaw rebounded from a dreadful game a night earlier with a season-high 27 points, and the Charlotte Bobcats snapped a four-game losing streak with a 118-110 victory Wednesday over the New York Knicks.
Gerald Henderson added 24 for the Bobcats, who capped a three-game road trip by winning for the first time since their opener. Reserve Byron Mullens scored 16 and D.J. Augustin finished with 14 points and 10 assists. Charlotte shot 55 percent from the field.
After watching rival Hickory sweep the first-ever all-county swim meet last year, St. Stephens made the best of its second chance.
The Indians, who were girls runners-up and third in boys competition last year, took both titles at the second Catawba County swimming championships Tuesday at the Hickory Foundation YMCA.
The performance came as a surprise to their coach.
â€śWe didnâ€™t think we had won the girls, and we didnâ€™t think we had a shot with the boys title at all,â€ť said Indians coach LeeAnn Privett. â€śThey just swam really well. We werenâ€™t expecting this.â€ť
