Charleston, WV (WOAY) – Greenbrier East girls basketball is headed to the Class AAA state semifinals after a 54-50 quarterfinal win over Huntington Wednesday morning.
A back-and-forth game started with the Lady Spartans scoring the first eight points of the contest, before Huntington went on a run of their own. Those runs continued late into the fourth quarter, when Abbie Bartenslager’s three-pointer put Greenbrier East in front 52-49.
Haley McClure led all scorers with 16 points, playing at a high level despite playing most of the second half with four fouls. Amya Damon contributed 10 points off the bench, while Bartenslager and Emma Dotson each came close to double-doubles.
Greenbrier East will play their semifinal at 9:00 PM Friday against the winner of University-Martinsburg.
