Lady Warriors dominant
Harding Fine Arts provided little resistance as Okarche got back in the win column.
The Lady Warriors were up by 33 points after just one quarter Tuesday in cruising to an 86-6 road win.
The team was without Jadyn Rother, but her services weren’t required as five different Lady Warriors scored in double figures.
Emma Stover had 18 points in the first quarter alone as Okarche got out to a 36-3 advantage.
She finished her night with 26 points.
Ruby VanDenDriessche added 13 points and Scout Payne 12.
Jalie Rother poured in 11 while Tyson Endres scored 10.

Okarche was coming off a loss last Friday to Lomega. The Lady Warriors are now 2-2.
Okarche was set to host Oklahoma Bible Academy on Friday (Nov. 18), but the Trojans are still in the football playoffs.
The game has tentatively been rescheduled for Saturday, Dec. 3, unless OBA is playing in the Class B state championship game.
