In Friday’s road win over Beaufort, Kirkland led the Lady Cougars with 13 points on the boards. Stephens added six points and Allen recorded five points.
“We picked up two region wins last week which helped improve our chances for making the playoffs,” said Coach Perry Smalls.
“A lot is riding on the next two games and the outcome of some contests throughout the region. It seems like our team is finally believing in our mission. Hopefully, we can put some pressure on the top two teams this week and finish strong.
“We will celebrate our seniors Thursday evening.”
The Lady Cougars are scheduled to travel to Berkeley (7-1 in Region 8-AAAA) Tuesday Feb. 6 and host Cane Bay (7-1 in Region 8-AAAA) Thursday Feb. 8.
