GIRLS' 19th DISTRICT TOURNAMENT: Stiles lifts TNHS past WC

SPRINGFIELD — It was one of those games that Thomas Nelson could have easily overlooked.

The Generals in Monday’s 19th District tournament opener faced a 9-20 Washington County team that did not win a district game this season, including a 48-43 loss to Thomas Nelson on Dec. 8 and a 62-32 setback on Jan. 30.

Coach Patty Rouse’s team got off to a quick start, then withstood a Washington County rally before capturing a 49-41 win Monday night on the Commanders’ home floor.
