Camdenton picks up two wins at Rogers Tournament

Camdenton crossed the border to the south to play in the Great 8 Classic in Rogers, Ark., last week and the Lakers picked up two wins in three games to capture fifth place.

“These young ladies had a great weekend. They improved their game each time they stepped on the court,” Camdenton coach Staci Caffey said. “We got a lot of great minutes out of our young freshmen who are learning the ‘Lady Laker’ way. Seniors Jessica Watson, Darby Roam and Natalie Basham did a great job of keeping the intensity high while playing a fast-paced game.”

Camdenton opened tournament play against Fort Smith Northside, which was a top 25 nationally ranked team according to Max Preps. It proved to be a tough start for the Lakers who fell to the unbeaten Grizzlies 74-33. Basham paced Camdenton with 21 points.
