The Oak Hill Lady Raiders have relied heavily on the offensive dominance that junior Sarah Dill has possessed in the opening games of the season. But one question had not been answered: What other player or players on the roster could carry the load if Dill, who is averaging close to 20 points per game, had an off night?

“I want them to treat every game like it is important,” Franks said. “They cannot take any games for granted. They made a great run in the playoffs last season, and if they want to get back there to the state tournament and overall tournament, they’ll have to play well every night.”
