The Lady Warriors punched their ticket to the regional tournament with a decisive 66-46 win over Steubenville Saturday afternoon, claiming the district title.

The Lady Warriors were in control from the opening tip, sprinting out to an 8-3 lead over the Big Red with a trip to the Sweet 16 in their sights.

Carrollton led 16-5 at the end of the first quarter and 28-17 at halftime.

The Lady Warriors kept their foot on the gas to start the second half, going on a 17-6 run within the first minutes of the contest.

Carrollton’s trip to the regional tournament is only the second in school history, the first since the 2015-16 season.

CHS senior Demi Leary, who is a 32% three-point shooter, started the game 3-for-3 from the three-point line. She finished the contest with 13 points.

Hillari Baker led the Lady Warriors scoring attack with 27 points. Kylie Ujcich added eight points.
