“It was a good win on the road,” Lynn Camp coach Clyde Dixon said. “Skylar McFarland was four-of-five shooting from three-point range and he led a balanced-scoring attack with 16 points. Freshman Austin Maier had 11, Gary Swafford and Zach Smith 10 each. It was a positive tune-up game with a tough opening game against Owensboro Catholic coming up on Thursday at the Monticello Tournament.”
