The Sacred Heart Academy girls basketball team went on an 8-2 run midway through the fourth quarter to pull away from Campbell County.

Kiki Samsel scored 19 points and Grace Berger scored 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds as the Valkyries defeated the Camels, 66-60 on the road. Kia Sivils scored 10 points and grabbed eight rebounds as well for the Valkyries.

“It was a really good game,” Sacred Heart head coach Donna Moir said. ‘I thought Campbell County was very well coached and they caused us matchup problems.”

Taylor Clos led the Camels, who represented the 10th Region in last year’s Kentucky Sweet 16, scoring 20 points and grabbing six rebounds. But the Valkyries defense forced the camels to shoot just 38 percent from the field for the game while they shot nearly 45 percent from the field.

Sacred Heart, winners of six straight, next hosts Lindsey Duvall and Bullitt East on Friday before closing the regular season next Tuesday at home against Seneca.
