South Gibson simply could not keep up with Westview.

Westview’s girls hit seven 3-pointers on the night and more than doubled SG’s scoring output in the third period after pulling out to a comfortable halftime lead.

The Westview girls are now 17-7 overall and 11-4 in the district, while the boys improve to 19-5 and 12-3. Both Charger teams play at Gibson County in 13AA action on Friday night.
