  1. Allison Cousin hit 2 free throws in the final seconds to give River Mill a 1pt lead. She then stole a inbound pass and made the layup. What a great game it was. Jackie Lyles and Allison Cousin gave a great showing. Just the type of game they need right before conf tourney.

  2. Yes jackie lyles spent her junior year @ NEG. Now she is back @ River Mill. Allison spent last year @ Graham

  3. Eastern Alamance is an excellent team. I believe their only two losses were both to River Mill.

    It would be exciting to see River Mill play any of the top Guilford County teams. Why don’t they?
