The Lady Chieftains launched the night with a 53-39 victory, followed by the Chieftains prevailing 66-57.

In the girls’ opener, Seminole received 13 points from Anna Andrews, including one 3-pointer, and 12 points from Holli Ladd.

Kennedy Coker and Kaylyn Cotner chipped in with eight points each. Coker posted two of Seminole’s four field goals from beyond the 3-point arc.

For Meeker (4-15), senior Lexi Lopez tallied 15 points. Junior Kaitlyn Culp scored 13 and senior Madison Hedge added 10.

Meeker hit 15-of-22 free throws, including a 6-of-8 performance from Lopez.

“We had 11 turnovers in the first half, but we played a little better in the third quarter,” Seminole coach Charles Kemp said. “That was a big win on the road because Meeker plays really hard.”

Seminole, 10-10, will travel to Stroud Friday. Kemp’s squad is 1-0 versus Stroud this year.
