After senior recognition, the Varsity teams hit the floor. A slow first half developed into a win for the Lady ’Cats, as Kinley Keaton hit some 3-pointers in the third and Allie Hock took charge in the fourth. Wildcats swatted the Hornets 48-40.

In the first round of the St. James Tournament, Norwood fell to the Licking Ladies 41-32. Licking will play St. James at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 18, in the semifinal round of the tournament.
