Lillian Geehring, a sophomore guard, contributed six points, seven rebounds, six steals and five assists for the Rebels, who improved to 4-3 in the Southern Carolina Conference and 13-5 overall.

Both teams are on the road Friday, with Parkwood playing at Marvin Ridge and Sun Valley traveling to Weddington.
