The Skyline varsity girls basketball team is a step closer to finishing out area play with a perfect record.
The Class 2A No. 2-ranked Vikings drained 12 3-pointers on the way to a 62-18 win at rival Woodville Thursday night.

“We’ve got to do that,” said Skyline coach Ronnie McCarver. “We’re so small, so when we play taller girls, we’ve got to do that. If they play us man, it’s hard for them to stay in front of us. If its zone, we’re shooting at lot of 3s. That’s the style we need to play.
Skyline hit five 3-pointers while building a 15-9 advantage after one quarter. The Vikings then hit six more treys in the second quarter to enjoy a 40-11 halftime lead.
