Having won six of their last seven games, with the only blemish being a 58-52 loss to No. 1 2A team Cannon County, the Cascade Lady Champions (14-6, 9-1 9-A) climbed into the top 10 AP poll.
Cascade, who currently sits in control of District 9-A with a 9-1 record so far this season, knocked off Huntland (44-33) and Eagleville (56-36) last week to remain on top of the district.
This week, the Lady Champs will be put to the test with a 9-A showdown at Fayetteville on Tuesday, and at home on Friday as the Lady Champs host the Forrest Lady Rockets. Forrest (9-13, 5-4 9-A) is the only district team to have defeated Cascade, which was back on December 11 where the Lady Champs suffered a 50-42 loss.
