BIDWELL - It was a game to remember on Thursday night for the Wellston Lady Rockets, as they scored a season-high in points to propel them to a victory they won't soon forget.

Behind a career-high 33-points by Wellston's Sydney Mullins, the Lady Rockets easily rolled past River Valley 71-38 in a TVC Ohio Division girls' basketball game at River Valley High School.

The win was the fourth straight by Wellston, as they improved to 7-5 overall and 2-5 in TVC Ohio Division play. River Valley, still winless, falls to 0-10, 0-5.

River Valley was held to single-digits in the first three quarters. Wellston led 35-17 at halftime and outscored the Lady Raiders 36-21 in the second half for the 33-point win on 33 of 70 (47.1 percent) shooting for the game.
