FAYETTEVILLE — Fayetteville didn’t make earning another impressive home win easy on itself Friday night.
The Lady Bulldogs’ struggles at the free-throw line for most of the night kept them from putting Springdale High away. But sophomore Kylee Coulter stepped up and knocked down foul shots when they counted.
Coulter made all four of her free throws in the final 80 seconds to help Fayetteville hold off Springdale for a 51-44 win to remain unbeaten in 7A-West play.
Springdale High senior Lauren Lamaestra is making her claim as the best female swimmer in program history.
Lamaestra is in the midst of an impressive senior season and has already qualified for state individually in the 200 IM, 50 free, 100 breast and 100 back, along with qualifying as part of the 200 medley relay. She has also participated on Springdale’s cheer and track teams.
