Carlisle&#8217;s Faith Walker shoots for two against Clarendon on Friday.

The Carlisle Lady Bison overcame a slow start to rout Clarendon 66-39 on Friday.

The Lady Bison followed that up with a 50-26 win over Palestine-Wheatley on Tuesday

In the win over Clarendon, Carlisle led 17-14 after one quarter and 21-18 with 6:04 left in the first half.

The Lady Bison then ended the half on a 17-2 run to lead 38-20.

Faith Walker scored nine points during the run. Presley Carter had five.

Walker led Carlisle with 24 points. Carter had 14. Callie Hillman added 11. Maddie Harrison scored eight. Hannah Cooper and Breanna Young scored three points each. Nicole Ring had two while Gennie Bariola added a free throw.

“We didn’t start off real well,” Carlisle coach Jonathan Buffalo said. “I thought we picked it up midway through the second quarter and stretched it out a little bit. We played well at the start of the second half.”

In the win over Palestine-Wheatley, Carlisle led 18-1 after one quarter and 43-11 at halftime.

Walker led the Lady Bison with 17 points. Young had 11. Sloane Henderson added eight. Hillman had seven. Carter added five while Harrison scored two

The Lady Bison are now 11-2 in 2A-6 play and 15-7 overall. They play Hughes tonight at Bison Arena with the 2A-6 conference championship at stake. If Carlisle loses, it could fall to the third seed. If they win, the Lady Bison will have their first conference title since 2009.

“Our goal, right now, is to win a conference championship,” Buffalo said. “At this time of the year, any win is a good win.”
