LEBANON -- Mt. Juliet picked up two District 9AAA wins at Lebanon High's historic Campbell Brandon Gym Friday night.
The girls game was over early as the Lady Bears (18-2) opened up a 10-0 lead and never looked back en route to a 70-32 victory -- snapping a seven game LHS winning steak.
Mt. Juliet senior post Caya Williams was unstoppable, rattling the nets for 30 points. Sally McCabe chipped in with 10.
No Lebanon player reached double figures. Kelsey Yarbrough had 8, while Kristen Dedman and Abby Wright had six each for LHS -- now 11-8 on the season.
The nightcap was a nip and tuck affair from the jump as Mt. Juliet (16-3) held off a stubborn Blue Devil club for a 63-59 victory. LHS slid to 6-12 with the loss.
Mt. Juliet guard Caleb Chowbay (pictured, right) led all scorers with 29 -- including four 3-pointers while teammate C.J. McEwen added 10.
