Leading from wire to wire, Roy-Hart posted a 53-34 victory over visiting Elba this evening in a non league girls basketball game.

Reilly Albee, Skyler Christopher and Ava Bligh each scored 10 points to lead the balanced attack for Roy-Hart which got point product from a total of 11 players.

Albee scored 8 quick points in the first quarter to help spark Roy-Hart out to an 18-10 lead as Christopher, Bligh, Rachael Rausch, Sarah Duewiger and Aylssa Hess each chipped in with a basket.

Keeping the momentum, the Lady Rams extended the lead to 32-19 at the half as Bligh and Delaney Draper both scored a pair of baskets in the second period while Albee, Christopher and Maddy Glena each added one.
