Climax Springs cruises at Hermitage

Climax Springs had no trouble dispatching Hermitage Friday night in a 75-19 win over the Hornets.

Jaden Butterfield scored 20 points for the Cougars, Autumn Wallace added 19, Abi Wolfe finished with 14 and Ava Wolfe was the fourth Cougar in double figures with 11 points while Maranda Burke chipped in nine.

"Ava had her best ball game of the year so hopefully she can get on track here around district time and it will surely help us," Climax Springs coach Ron Rhodes said.
