The PHS varsity girls basketball team remained undefeated in conference play with league wins over Brookfield and Macon last week.
The Lady Panthers (16-4, 3-0 CCC) got out to a great start in securing a 72-46 win at Macon Friday.
Candra King scored nine points and Ashley Body came off the bench to scored six in the team’s 21-4 first-quarter burst.
Palmyra maintained its 17-point lead into the third quarter, when the Lady Panthers went on a 25-13 run to ice the game.
Most of the Lady Panthers’s onslaught came from insider the lane, but they were also deadly from outside the arc where they hit six of 15.
Defense was also a major contributor as Palmyra collected 18 steals.
King ended up with a game-high 19 points, to go along with seven rebounds, a steal and two blocked shots.
Sydney Compton was second on the team with 14 points, while also collecting six rebounds and three steals.
Bode also hit both of her three-point attempts and finished with 12 points, three rebounds and two steals.
Taytum White added 12 points and was followed by Abbey Redd, six, Clare Williams, four, and Avery Compton, three.
Williams was a menace on defense, leading the team with six steals.
The Lady Panthers won a 53-44 conference tilt at home Tuesday, against a scrappy Brookfield squad.
The game was in doubt well into the fourth quarter before Palmyra managed to pull away down the stretch.
Palmyra led 23-15 at the half, but Brookfield remained within striking distance by trimming the deficit by two going into the final period.
Sydney Compton led the team with 16 points to go along with seven rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot, Abby Redd scored 10 of her 11 points in the second half, and collected four steal.
King led the team with nine rebounds while scoring 10 points and blocking four shots.
Also scoring were White, 10 points and Williams, four.
Conference action continues this week with a home game against Clark County, Tuesday, and a trip to South Shelby, Friday.
