BY DAN THALMANN/ Publisher.
 
WASHINGTON – The Washington County Tiger girls got a commanding first round win at their sub-state game on Tuesday in Washington. They put up 67 total points after burning the nets with 41 points in the first half. After starting with a 21-4 first quarter lead, the game was never in question and WCHS solidified their #1 seed with a 67-22 win. “Our effort on both ends of the floor was pretty good,” said WCHS Head Coach Scott Romeiser. “Offensively we had girls step up and shoot the ball with confidence and defensively we did not give up many second chance shots. Hopefully this game will give us momentum for the rest of the week.”
