The Gray Collegiate Girls’s basketball team defeated Andrews High School, 66-46 Tuesday night in the first round of the S.C. High School League Class 2A playoffs. Kayla Gordon had a big night for the War Eagles. She dropped in 32 points to lead all scorers.
“I was really impressed with the way his girls played tonight,” Gray Collegiate head coach David Golden said. Golden also said he is “looking forward” to the next round of the playoffs. It was the first-ever playoff game on the West Columbia home campus.

Gray Collegiate continued to control the game in the third quarter, and held a lead of 54-29 by the end of the period. The fourth quarter was like much of the first three, with the War Eagles extending the spread to end the game with a 20-point win over the Yellow Jackets from Georgetown County.
