Kinley Fisher posted nine points for the Lady Bulldogs, Ally Sockey was right behind her with eight points and seven rebounds. Greenwood struggled from the three-point range, making only four out of 32 attempts from behind the arc.

"I'm extremely proud of our girls we worked hard," said Cartwright. "We worked extremely hard all season and this is where we wanted to be and it's a huge accomplishment and to end my basketball career here."
