[SUPER=03-Salem/Bridgewater vs. E & H; :00]

Bridgewater was not only the tourney's top seed, but the tournament's defending champions, as well. But Emory & Henry jumps on top early as Tammy Snyder hits the three pointer. The lady Wasps shot 55 percent in the first half of this one. Bridgewater would attempt to counter in the second half with its Shawsville connection as Megan Forster feeds Sarah Hagood for two of her career high 20 points. But Emory & Henry would lead from start to finish as Kelly Smith hits the

[SUPER=03-Salem/Guilford vs. Roanoke; :00]

In the second semi-final Roanoke College looked to cruise into tomorrow's title tilt as the Maroons played Guilford. The Quakers only had 8 players in uniform, one of those was Amy Evans. She knocks in this jumper off the break. Roanoke would answer with Cave Spring product Cheryl Rhodes passing to Narrow's Suzanne Webb. She scores for the 'Noke. Guilford would then work it inside to Arden Miller. She hits the turnaround.

But Roanoke was too much to handle. Pulaski's Carrie McConnell gets it to Floyd's Jill Quesenberry. Roanoke wins it 78-to-60.
