The team’s semifinal game against South Shelby Wednesday, Feb. 26 was dangerously close until the last quarter when Clopton finally pulled away. Harrelson was again the scoring leader with 18 points. She shot eight-for-eight from the free throw line. Caragan Lockard scored 12.
Paris will go on to play Scotland County Wednesday, March 4.
