The Wildcats outscored KSD 30-22 in the second half to close out the 74-40 win, improving to 10-11 on the season.
After the win, Lynn Camp coach Clyde Dixon said he was happy with the win and the way his team executed.

“We had three guys with outstanding performances,” he added. “Hopefully we can keep playing well because we have a big game this Friday against Casey County and we’ll be looking for out third win in a row.”
