JOHNSTON — Richard Winn Academy Lady Eagles traveled to Johnston to play the Wardlaw Academy Patriots on Dec. 13 and despite a 62-6 blow out win, Coach Jason Haltiwanger said he felt his team did not play up to its potential.

Carson Justice outscored everyone with 17 points. Emily Brigman put up 12, and Jessie Stidham and Jaycie Johnson each had eight to add.

The varsity boys from RWA led Wardlaw from the beginning. RWA was up 33-26 at halftime, and continued its lead into the final quarters of play. The final score was 58-47.

Cameron Cooper led the Eagles in scoring with 20 points. Joseph Goldin had 15 and Patrick Pope added 14 to the scoreboard.

Union County High School paid a visit to the Eagles’ Nest on Monday but scores were unavailable at press time.

“(The game will be interesting because) the head coach was my assistant, and I coached one of the assistants now,” RWA Head Coach Joe Pitt said of Monday’s game. “They’re a really athletic team. It’s going to be a battle.”
