It was a strong finish to a successful basketball season for the Starkville Academy Lady Cougars.
The Lady Cougars won their last five games, including a sweep of the Grace Christian Invitational field over the weekend to claim the championship.
Starkville Christian basketball coach Luke Buckner saw his girls improve with each game behind seniors Kristina Eaves and Emma Hicks. They finished with a 17-8 record.
