Jonesboro 62, Spalding 28: Michelle Smith scored 10 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Lady Cardinals to their 13th straight game.

Henry County (12-6) got off to a slow start falling behind 9-0 to start the game, but the Lady Hawks responded, eventually taking a 21-12 lead by the end of the first quarter. That lead gradually dwindled — to four at halftime, to just one point entering the fourth quarter — and then vanished when Peach County took the lead two minutes into the final quarter.

But Henry County reclaimed the lead two minutes later and never looked back.

Cameron Whitehorn added 16 points, including four 3-pointers, while Devon Lewis scored 12 points.

Forest Park 51, Ola 15: Despite resting several of their starters, the Lady Panthers cruised to the Region 4-AAAAA, Div. A win at home.

Tequilla Richardson had 15 points and Kayla Potts added 11 points, five assists and two blocks as the Lady Panthers won for the eighth straight time.

Nagging injuries kept starters Breasia McElrath and Kanisha Tharpe out of the lineup.

The Panthers take on Southwest DeKalb on Saturday in a non-region road game.

Woodland 70, Stockbridge 13: The Lady Wolfpack did just fine without head coach Ashley Maddox in a Region 4-AAAA, Div. A victory at home.

Maddox was at the hospital with his wife, who is expecting.
